HC Deb 03 June 1949 vol 465 c198W
Commander Noble

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many evacuees from Gibraltar are still accommodated in the Fulham Road Institution; and when it is expected to release these premises.

Mr. Creech Jones

There are at present 584 evacuees from Gibraltar in this institution. The greater part are being repatriated to Gibraltar as rapidly as transport, and accommodation in Gibraltar, permit, and it is expected that the premises will be released by the end of September.
