British policy with regard to the case of Polish independence during the First World War was mainly determined by British-Russian relations. After the Soviet revolution in 1917 the situation changed. Since then it was not only the question of the future of the Polish state, it was the problem of British relations with Germany and France after the end of the war. Prime Minister David Lloyd George was the man who conducted the foreign policy almost by himself. His two FO ministers A. J. Balfour and Lord Curzon were helping him to solve the Polish question in the best interest of the United Kingdom. In most cases it was against the Polish expectations.
