Summary note
A file of correspondence and reports concerning Anglo-Polish relations, focussing on a visit to Poland by the Lord Chancellor, Elwyn Jones. The documents cover the arrangements for the visit, which followed an invite from the Marshal of the Polish Sejm, Stanisław Gucwa -- and the programme for the visit, which included trips to both the north and the south of Poland, meetings with leading politicians, and entertainment. Other documents in the file include details of talks held with the Polish prime minister, Piotr Jaroszewicz, on economic matters, agriculture in Poland, and church-state relations -- and a memorandum presented to the Lord Chancellor by the Minister of Justice, Jerzy Bafia, titled "Legal relations with Great Britain". The file also covers arrangements for the delivery of lectures by the wife and the daughter of the Lord Chancellor -- discussions on plans to offer a return invitation to Bafia -- and a brief on the political and economic situation in Poland.
