§ Sir R. Glyn
asked the Secretary of State for War how many units of U.N.R.R.A. are now working in Germany and liberated territory, respectively; whether the rates of pay are in any way comparable with those paid for similar work to service and Red Cross workers doing identical work; what has been the amount and cost of the services provided by the Army for these units for transport, rations and communications; and whether he will arrange for these duties 1891W to be carried out, so far as displaced persons are concerned, by service units or the Red Cross.
§ Sir J. Grigg
240 U.N.R.R.A. Teams are now working in Germany. None are working in liberated territory in North-West Europe. I am informed that in general rates of pay for U.N.R.R.A. personnel compare not unfavourably with those for Service and/or Red Cross personnel engaged on similar work. The services provided by the Army are on the normal scales for Army units. I regret that information as to their cost is not available.
I regret that I cannot adopt the suggestion in the last part of my hon. Friend's Question.
