To ask Her Majesty's Government what advice they give to black and Asian British citizens travelling to Poland in the light of recent experiences of persons reportedly subjected to racial abuse, harassment and threats of violence.

There have been no reports in the Polish press of abuse, harassment or threatening behaviour being directed towards black or Asian British citizens in Poland. We see the risk of British citizens, irrespective of ethnic origin, being attacked in Poland as being negligible. We do not, therefore, have any plans to produce specific travel advice for black and Asian British citizens at this time. However, we constantly review our travel advice with our embassy in Poland and amend it when necessary.
