HC Deb 23 November 1956 vol 560 cc114-6W
Captain Kerby

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will consider using Wilton House, Wilton Park, Steyning, Sussex, as a reception centre for Hungarian refugees.

Mr. Dodds-Parker

No. The problem of accommodating Hungarian refugees is an immediate one and is being dealt with by the British Council for Aid to Refugees in consultation with the Government Departments concerned. Wilton House will be in continuous use as an Anglo-German discussion centre until next July and, even if otherwise desirable, it would not be feasible to cancel the arrangements at this stage.
