Follow this EDM by:


That this House notes with great sadness the decision of the Press Complaints Commission (PCC) to refuse to take action in the case of Giles Coren's article of 26th July 2008 published in The Times and supports the Association of the Foundation of Poles in Great Britain that the use of offensive words such as `polack' and the statement that Poles `...used to amuse themselves at Easter by locking Jews in the synagogue and setting fire to it' should most certainly be condemned and fall within the remit of the PCC; and, while saluting the dignified response of Her Excellency the Polish Ambassador, acknowledges the great pain and distress caused by this article to the Polish community in the UK and beyond.
