HC Deb 12 February 1947 vol 433 cc354-5
28. Vice-Admiral Taylor

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether the resolution of U.N.O. whereby refugees who did not wish to return to their countries would not come under the control of the representatives of Governments whose authority they challenged, is still being carried out in the British zone of Germany.

Mr. J. Hynd

Yes, Sir.

Vice-Admiral Taylor

Is the Minister not aware that in February this year the United Nations General Assembly rejected a suggestion that all displaced persons, irrespective of their wishes concerning repatriation, should be controlled by the representatives of the State from which they come?

Mr. Hynd

The fact that the United Nations, or any other body, rejected a proposition, does not mean that they adopted a contrary proposition.
