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?

I’d have to look into this

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?

Yes

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

Yes

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?

That would be an involved situation, with all current EU countries having a claim, as would UK nations living abroad having a claim with the countries they live in.  I wouldn’t be in favour of forcing people to leave

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

Yes


Questions were sent out after the elections.
