asked the Prime Minister what is the present position of the question of autonomy in Eastern Galicia; whether any representations have been made to the Poles either by the Supreme Council or by the League of Nations in regard to this matter within the last six months; and, if so, what the reply of the Polish Government has been?

There has been no change from the international point of view as regards the question of autonomy in Eastern Galicia since the reply returned to the Noble Lord the Member for Hit[...]hin (Lord R. Cecil) on 22nd May. As regards the attitude of the Polish Government in this respect, I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the answer which I gave to the hon. Member for Harrow (Mr. Mosley) on 6th July. The answer to the second part of the question is in the negative. The third part of the question, therefore, does not arise.

Is it not a fact that this question of the autonomy of Eastern Galicia is at present remitted to the League of Nations, and have we any guarantee that the League of Nations will do anything in this connection at its next meeting?
