AQA has taken a unilateral decision to scrap the A-level in Polish from 2018. Are you going to lobby the AQA to reverse their decision? If yes, are there any other actions which you would undertake in order to preserve the Polish A-level?

In terms of the issue regarding A-Level Polish being scrapped, I have written to AQA to seek clarification on their reasoning for this, and will be arguing the case for keeping A-Level Polish.

Poland was the most loyal ally of Britain in the Second World War and the Polish army contributed to the defeat of Nazi Germany. Would you therefore challenge some of the British media falsely labelling the German concentration and death camps as being “Polish” e.g. Polish ghetto, death camps of Poland, or, Poland’s Auschwitz?

I fully agree with you that Poland was one of the most loyal allies in World War Two. I have several friends who are Polish and have heard first hand from them the contribution their families made during World War Two.

Do you support promoting information about the positive contribution of Polish immigrants to the economy of the UK?

In the event of Brexit, would you support granting an unconditional Indefinite Leave To Remain to the EU citizens who have lived and worked in Britain under the freedom of movement rules?

The question on Brexit is an interesting one. It is certainly an issue that would be worth considering, and I would again be happy to raise this in Parliament.

Would you consider joining the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Poland and finding out about its activities and initiatives?

[The MP replied that he will raise the issue of promoting the positive image of Poles in the UK with the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Poland]
