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?
On the issue of Polish A- levels. I am pleased to confirm that the Education Secretary. Nicky Morgan, has guaranteed the future od GCSE’s and A- levels in Polish. She has written to the exam boards calling on them to reverse their decision to cancel them.
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?
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?
Would you consider joining the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Poland and finding out about its activities and initiatives?
Questions were sent out after the elections.
