48. Mrs. Manning
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many of the displaced persons and the surviving victims of concentration camps now kept in assembly camps under British control in Germany and Austria are Jewish, distinguishing between men, women and children; and whether it is intended to keep these persons in camps pending their final settlement.
§ The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (Mr. John Hynd)
I regret that in 406 the time available it has not been possible to obtain the detailed figures asked for by my hon. Friend. Displaced persons, including the surviving victims of concentration camps, are accommodated in assembly centres where they can receive preferential treatment as regards food, clothing and shelter. They have complete freedom of movement. It is the intention to care for them in this way until their final settlement.
