HC Deb 07 May 1948 vol 450 c161W
Mr. Lipson

asked the Secretary of State for War what is the present number in the Polish Resettlement Corps who are still without employment.

Mr. Shinwell

Approximately 30,000 members of the Army Polish Resettlement Corps are still awaiting resettlement. A number of these are employed on administrative duties in the Polish Resettlement Corps or work for the Army, or in running family camps and civilian workers' hostels on behalf of the Assistance Board and the National Service Hostels Corporation; about 1,800 are undergoing training with a view to fitting them for civilian employment.
