§ 34. Mr. LEONARD
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been called to the petition relating to the treatment and suppression of the Ukrainian co-operative societies by the Polish authorities which has recently been submitted to the League of Nations by the Ukrainian co-operative movement; and what action His Majesty's Government intend to take in this matter?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Eden)
I have seen a statement to the effect that such a petition has been presented to the Council of the League of Nations, who will no doubt deal with it in accordance with the customary procedure.
§ Mr. LEONARD
Is the hon. Member aware that a considerable body of opinion in this country is watching this attack on the co-operative principle and expects His Majesty's Government's representative to protect the rights of minority people?
