HC Deb 27 February 1957 vol 565 c188W
126. Mr. Moss

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will state the number of refugees living on British registered ships, the average length of time of their sojourn there and the source of financial support for their maintenance while on board.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The records available cover only ships which have called at United Kingdom ports in the last twelve months. According to these records there are no refugees living on British registered ships other than as members of the crew. The average length of service is three years.
