HC Deb 12 March 1980 vol 980 c580W
Mr. Race

asked the Lord Privy Seal if, in the context of the Helsinki Agreement, he will make representations to the Government of Poland concerning the imprisonment of Edmund Zadrozynski, a member of the Committee for the Defence of Workers (KSS-KOR), and one of the editors of the newspaper Rototnik; and if he will press for his release.

Mr. Blaker

The Government's policy is to raise individual human rights cases with East European Governments when we judge that this is appropriate and might he effective. To reveal the details of our representations might undermine their effectiveness. We are keeping under close review cases such as that of Mr. Zadrozynski.
