asked the PrimeMinister whether the Polish Government intends to hold elections to the Polish Diet in Eastern Galicia on 1st October; and whether, since, according to Article 91 of the Treaty of St. Germains, the Allied and Associated Powers alone are competent to dispose of the rights of Eastern Galicia, any representations have been made to the Polish Government in regard to their independent action?

Mr. HARMSWORTH:

On 21st February the Polish Diet adopted a motion to the effect that elections to the new Diet should be held not later than 1st October. A report is awaited as to the attitude of the Polish Government in regard to elections in Eastern Galicia, pending which I am unable to make any statement regarding the desirability or otherwise of making any representations in the sense suggested.

Did the Polish Government announce their intention of not holding the elections in Eastern Galicia to the Polish Diet, and if they do not, would this not be a violation of the Treaty of St. Germains?

Mr. HARMSWORTH:

We are awaiting a report on this question from the Polish Government.
