Sir J. D. REES
asked the Under-Secretary of. State for Foreign Affairs whether a refugee camp is still maintained at Bakuba, at a cost of £3,000 a day; and, if so, for what purpose, and for how long it is proposed to continue to maintain such a camp at the expense, if that is the case, of the British taxpayer?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
A refugee camp is still maintained at Bakuba, though the number of refugees is being reduced by repatriation as fast as possible. There are several thousand Armenians whom it may be impossible to repatriate this winter. The whole question, which is entirely a humanitarian one, is at present under consideration.
