HC Deb 19 December 1941 vol 376 cc2237-8
28. Mrs. Tate

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will give a list of the, approximately, 120 smaller refugee organisations to whom £83,691 has been granted between 1st June, 1940, and 31st October last, stating the sum that each has received; and whether there has been independent or Governmental supervision and audit of the funds placed at the disposal of refugee organisations?

The Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department (Mr. Peake)

I will send my hon. Friend a list of the organisations referred to in the first part of her Question. The grants are payable through the Central Committee for Refugees, which is responsible for seeing that the organisations assisting refugees comply with the conditions on which the grant is paid, including a condition that the accounts must be properly audited.
