§ Mr. Stokes
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the reports from the Ambassadors in Russia, Poland and Czechoslovakia indicate that mass expulsions of people of German origin have now ceased from Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary.545W
§ Mr. Bevin
The three Ambassadors to whom my hon. Friend refers are not in a position to report with absolute certainty on this subject but, broadly speaking, their reports, and reports from Germany, confirm what my right hon. Friend the Minister of State told my hon. Friend on 19th November namely, that so far as we can judge there have been very few expulsions from Czechoslovakia in recent times, and certainly the number from Poland has greatly diminished.
