§ Mr. LANSBURY
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the amount of public money which has been paid during the past three years by the British Government in the support and maintenance of Armenian, Assyrian and Greek refugees, and the total amount paid from public funds during the same period towards the support of civilian and military Russian refugees; whether any payments of a similar character are at present being paid to individuals or groups of nationals belonging to any foreign Government; and, if so, on what Vote is the cost of such payments being borne?
§ Mr. McNEILL
No payments have been made during the last three years on the support and maintenance of Armenian, Assyrian and Greek refugees. With regard to Russians, the total payments made in those years amounted to £3,946 including a refund to the Government of India. No payments of a similar character are now being made to any foreign nationals except £15 a year from the Diplomatic and Consular Vote to one Turkish subject.
