asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the effect of the export restrictions, which he announced on 31st March, on the Anglo-Polish Trade Agreement.

The Export Control Order to which the hon. Member refers does not conflict with any provision of the Anglo-Polish Trade and Finance Agreement.

Does that mean that the various commodities which Poland is anxious to buy from England as a result of the Anglo-Polish Treaty are in no way affected? If I remember aright, certain kinds of machine tools were involved. Can the Minister therefore give a guarantee?
