Premier Wladislaw Sirkorski’s declaration on the Jewish question while in the United States was endorsed in a motion passed at today’s meeting of the Polish National Council. The motion said:

“The Government of the Polish Republic shares the principles expressed by the Prime Minister in the United States concerning the Polish Government’s policy towards the Jews and associates itself with his statement on this matter to the National Council on June 4, which reads:

“In accordance with the sincerely democratic policy of the Polish Government, the principle of equal duties and equal rights will be binding for all citizens of the Polish Republic, irrespective of nationality, race and faith. That is the attitude of the Polish Government, which considers any pursuance of an anti-Semitic policy as detrimental.”
