Vice-Admiral Taylor asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he has any further information as to the holding of free elections in Poland; and if it is still intended that these shall be held under inter-Allied supervision.

As regards the first part of the Question, I have nothing to add to the reply given by my right hon. Friend to the hon. and gallant Members for Waterloo (Captain Bullock)and for Finchley (Captain Crowder) on 24th October. As to the second part of the Question, no decision has at any stage been taken that the elections in Poland should be held under inter-Allied supervision. The conditions under which His Majesty's Government expect these elections to take place were explained in the reply of my right hon. Friend to the hon. Member for Cambridge University (Mr. Pickthorn) of 10th October.
