HC Deb 16 March 1922 vol 151 cc2403-4W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what are the amounts which have been paid away on various occasions by His Majesty's Government for the upkeep and maintenance of Assyrian, Armenian, Russian, and other refugees?


The total expenditure incurred in connection with Russian refugees is £1,108,336.

The total expenditure on Armenian refugees in Iraq is:

Estimates, 1921/22 278,000
Previous to 1921/22, rupees 135 lakhs = (at par) 900,000

It is regretted that, several Departments being concerned, it is not possible to give at once the total expenditure incurred up-to-date in respect of:

  1. (1) Assyrian refugees;
  2. (2) Armenian refugees other than those in Iraq;
but the information is being obtained, and will be communicated to the hon. Member.
