HC Deb 01 August 1951 vol 491 c205W
77. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, in view of the fact that projects to provide work for the Arabs in refugee camps has had to be abandoned for lack of funds, what steps he will now take at the United Nations organisation to ensure that these works are continued.

Mr. Ernest Davies

Under a United Nations General Assembly Resolution of November, 1950, a new programme was started on 1st July, 1951, which provides for projects for the resettlement of refugees. These projects will give employment to some of the refugees. In these circumstances no action by His Majesty's Government is called for.
