Nato Summit (16 Jul 2018)

Daniel Kawczynski: The Prime Minister needs to be far more robust on the issue of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which is a genuine threat to our key NATO partners in eastern and central Europe. Is she willing to impose sanctions on companies involved in this project?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Amphibious Capability (9 Jul 2018)

Daniel Kawczynski: What recent assessment has he made of the UK armed forces’ amphibious capability.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Amphibious Capability (9 Jul 2018)

Daniel Kawczynski: I thank the Minister for that answer. Can he give me an assurance that Royal Marine numbers will not be cut in the foreseeable future and that there will be more joint exercises with our Polish and Baltic states allies?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (9 Jul 2018)

Daniel Kawczynski: Members of the all-party parliamentary group on Poland, including me, last week met British soldiers serving in the Suwalki gap, helping to defend Poland. What are the key aspects of our bilateral treaty agreement with Poland going forward?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: United States: Human Rights and Diplomatic Relations (26 Jun 2018)

Daniel Kawczynski: President Trump states that EU tariffs are disproportionately higher against American goods than American tariffs on EU products. What assessment has the Foreign Secretary made of those allegations?

UK and Polish War Reparations (20 Jun 2018)

Daniel Kawczynski: I beg to move, That this House has considered UK and Polish war reparations from Germany. Last year, I visited Warsaw to receive an award on behalf of my family for the brother of my grandfather Jan Kawczynski. He was acutely aware that in Poland there was the death penalty for hiding Jewish friends and neighbours. Nevertheless, he took the risk and hid many of his Jewish friends and...

UK and Polish War Reparations (20 Jun 2018)

Daniel Kawczynski: I did not quite hear everything the hon. Gentleman said.

UK and Polish War Reparations (20 Jun 2018)

Daniel Kawczynski: That is a very good point and I do not believe there has actually been a formal apology to the Polish nation and people. Germany has not publicly stated to Poland the importance of apologising for what happened and of granting compensation. I have spoken to many Germans this week. They say, “Look, this is an issue that we have already dealt with. We reached an agreement with the Polish...

UK and Polish War Reparations (20 Jun 2018)

Daniel Kawczynski: Absolutely. I am extremely grateful to my hon. Friend for that. The Soviet Union wanted some form of peace in the Council for Mutual Economic Assistance and the Soviet bloc—bear in the mind the importance of getting along with East Germany—so Poland was forced by the Soviet Union to keep quiet and not ask for any compensation. These Communist dictators, whose names are indelibly...

UK and Polish War Reparations (20 Jun 2018)

Daniel Kawczynski: We have had huge support. Let us not forget that there are now 1 million Poles living in our country. Poland is the second-most spoken language on our island after English. I am very proud of the contribution that those 1 million Poles make to our country. As I tour the United Kingdom and meet Polish organisations, they repeatedly raise this issue with me. It is such an issue of honour for...

UK and Polish War Reparations (20 Jun 2018)

Daniel Kawczynski: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention.

UK and Polish War Reparations (20 Jun 2018)

Daniel Kawczynski: I will come on to that right at the end of my speech, if I may, to sum up. Let me quickly turn now to British war reparations, because this debate, of course, is about Polish and British war reparations. We have in Westminster Hall the hon. Member for Coventry South, whose city was more affected than any other in the bombing that Britain experienced during the second world war. In March, I...

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Daniel Kawczynski: The hon. Gentleman is talking about reparations and dealing with property rights, but will he recognise that the key stumbling block to all this is the fact that Germany has not yet paid war reparations? My friend in the Polish Parliament, Mr Mularczyk, is heading a taskforce to look at the feasibility of Poland claiming war reparations against Germany. Some estimates put the cost of the...

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Daniel Kawczynski: The hon. Gentleman is making a powerful speech. I want to get on the record something with which I hope he agrees. Poland welcomed more than 3 million Jews to live there before the outbreak of war, and the two communities co-operated and got on very well. I am proud of how the Poles accepted so many outsiders into their country and of the harmonious society they created. It was the travesty...

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Daniel Kawczynski: The hon. Lady says that this law is not the right way for the Polish Government to tackle this issue. However, when we bear in mind that I have been writing to the BBC for over seven years to ask it to be more sensitive about this issue, and the BBC continues to refer to “Polish death camps”, what is her advice to the Polish Government and other organisations that worry about the...

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Daniel Kawczynski: The hon. Gentleman is, as usual, making an eloquent speech. At all these award ceremonies where Poles are recognised for helping Jews—certainly at the one I attended—the Polish Prime Minister, Mr Morawiecki, is present, as is the head of the Law and Justice party, Prezes Kaczyński. They want to send a strong message about the strength of feeling among the Polish state about...

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Daniel Kawczynski: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gapes. I rise as the chairman of the all-party parliamentary group on Poland and as the first ever Polish-born British Member of Parliament. The hon. Member for Leeds North West (Alex Sobel) alluded to the terrible suffering of Polish people who helped their Jewish neighbours and friends. I will start by giving a very personal account of...

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Daniel Kawczynski: Absolutely. I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. There is a huge lack of information about what happened during the second world war. I saw yesterday some shocking figures about young people in the United States of America: many of them do not even know what the holocaust was. That is extraordinary when we consider that in my grandparents’ generation, millions of...

Polish Anti-defamation Law — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Daniel Kawczynski: I am very sorry that the hon. Gentleman has received those comments. Unfortunately, all Members suffer vile abuse on Twitter, as I am sure he will recognise. There are crackpots in every society. Has he managed to speak to the Polish ambassador, or to visit Poland during the course of this year, to get a first-hand account of the situation on the ground there? A lot of misinformation on this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Economic Growth (22 May 2018)

Daniel Kawczynski: Thank you, Mr Speaker. With regard to important infrastructure projects such as the north-west relief road in Shrewsbury, will the Chancellor give me an assurance that when the land frees up housing capacity when the road is built, that will be taken into consideration when the schemes are apportioned funding?
