§ Mr. NOEL BUXTON
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he could give any further information as to whether the Albanian refugees in Montenegro were receiving adequate subsistence in food, shelter, and clothing; and whether His Majesty's Minister at Cetinje would give assistance in the distribution of funds if money is sent to him from England for the purpose of relieving the refugees?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
I have no information in regard to the condition of the Albanian refugees in Montenegro other than that given in my reply to the question addressed to me on the 18th instant by the hon. Member for the Bridgeton Division of Glasgow. In regard to the second portion of the hon. Member's question, I have already stated that His. Majesty's Government would do their best to obtain facilities from the Montenegrin Government for any private and independent organisation that desired to collect and distribute relief among the Albanian refugees and non-combatants. His Majesty's representative at Cetinje could not himself undertake the distribution of money forwarded from this country, but he would give all proper assistance to any agent of such organisations who may be sent to Montenegro for the purpose.
