§ 49. Captain Duncan
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many child refugees have been given relief or been resettled by the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund since 1947; how many are known to be still needing relief and resettlement by the fund and how many of these are in British territories.
§ The Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Mr. Ernest Davies)
The number of children to whom relief has been given by the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund since 1947 is approximately 25½ million. In addition, large numbers have been provided with codliver oil, medical supplies and so forth. The United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund does not undertake resettlement of refugees. I regret I cannot obtain any estimates as to how many children, whether in or outside British territories, are still in need.
§ Captain Duncan
Can the hon. Gentleman say whether the fund has supplied money or goods to the Greek Government, to help the Greek children now coming out of Yugoslavia?
§ Mr. Davies
This fund assists Greek children, Whether it is assisting those particular children I am not yet in a position to say.
§ 50. Captain Duncan
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund has sent a representative to Korea to supervise the issue of relief to child refugees in that country.
