§ Mr. Platts-Mills
asked the Minister of Defence how many U.S. military personnel are at present stationed in the United Kingdom; what Services are represented; and when they may be expected to evacuate.
§ Mr. Alexander
Less than 5,000. These include the staff of the Commander-in-Chief of United States Naval Forces in the Eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean, officers on courses and liaison duties, other members of the United States Forces on goodwill and training visits, and those engaged on the registration of war graves. A number are here in connection with the Berlin air lift. I am unable to forecast the length of their stay.
