asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (1) whether he will ask for a copy of the report of the deputation from the House of Representatives in the U.S.A., on their visit to Poland, Czechoslovakia and Austria, and place it in the Library of the House of Commons, in order that Members may acquaint themselves with its contents;

(2) whether he is aware that a deputation from the House of Representatives in the U.S.A. has recently returned from a visit to Poland. Czechoslovakia and Austria, and is presenting a full report to the American Congress; and if he will make arrangements for the dispatch of a similar Parliamentary Commission at an early date.

I understand that the Sub-Committee of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the United States House of Representatives which visited Poland, Czechoslovakia and Austria two months ago is to make its official report to the Foreign Affairs Committee shortly in closed session. It will be for the Committee to decide if the report or any part of it should be made public. If it is, I shall gladly arrange for a copy to be placed in the Library of the House. As regards a similar visit by Members of Parliament, if the House has any proposals to make and desires my help in arranging such a visit, I shall, of course, be glad to consider in what way I can be of assistance.
