HC Deb 07 December 1954 vol 535 cc34-5W
Major Legge-Bourke

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what assistance is being given to those members of the Venezia Giulia police who were evacuated from Trieste to this country on the withdrawal of the Allied Military Government.

Mr. Turton

Some 34 members with their families were evacuated to this country, and are being maintained in hostels, pending their resettlement. Provision for this expenditure will be made in a forthcoming Supplementary Estimate of the Foreign Office Grants and Services Vote. In the meantime the costs are being met from advances from the Civil Contingencies Fund.
