§ 10. Earl Winterton
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if the exist- 5 ence and functions of the Inter-Governmental Committee for Refugees are to be continued; and the number of displaced persons still remaining in Europe who come within the mandate of the Inter-Governmental Committee.
The number of displaced persons in Europe who are able and willing to return to their homes, and therefore are not within the Committee's mandate, is in process of ascertainment. No estimate of the number of people within the Committee's mandate can therefore yet be formed. The existence and functions, however, of the Inter-Governmental Committee on Refugees are to be continued pending the result of deliberations, now proceeding, by the United Nations on the general refugee problem.
