HC Deb 06 March 1947 vol 434 cc99-100W
Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is now in a position to state whether legal aid and maintenance will be provided for dependants of natives of other countries who are no longer domiciled here and who have evaded their personal responsibilities; and how many illegitimate half-caste children are concerned in such negotiations.

Mr. Ede

As regards maintenance I am not in a position to add anything to the replies given on 3rd February by the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs and by the Prime Minister on 10th February, to Questions in Parliament, copies of which I am sending to my hon. Friend. As regards legal aid, I hope soon to be in a position to make a statement regarding the arrangements made for such aid in American cases.
