HC Deb 15 February 1940 vol 357 c983W
Mr. J. Wilmot

asked the Minister of Health the number of evacuated mothers with children who have returned to evacuation areas and how many still remain in the reception areas; and what steps he now proposes to take?

Mr. Elliot

Approximately 146,000 mothers and 223,850 children evacuated under the Government scheme have returned to the evacuating areas. About 20,200 mothers and 36,400 children have remained in the reception areas. As regards the Government's proposals for further evacuation, I would refer the hon. Member to my statement in the House this afternoon.
