HC Deb 07 July 1942 vol 381 c643W
Mr. Robertson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what action he will take to relieve the plight of two fatherless girls, aged 17 and 15 years, respectively, evacuated from Ceylon on the advice of the authorities and now dependent on strangers in Midlothian who have kindly taken them in, as the Department of Health for Scotland is unable to care for them?

Mr. Johnston

A billeting allowance in respect of these girls has now been authorised.
