Two hundred refugees, including eighteen suffering from tuberculosis, as well as others with a past history of this disease, have so far been accepted for admission during World Refugee Year. Details of the arrangements for their reception and settlement were given in my reply to a Question by my hon. Friend the Member of Lewisham. North (Mr. Chataway) on 30th October, 1959.
As to the admission of more specially handicapped refugees of long standing. I would refer my hon. Friend to my reply 171W of 2nd February to a Question by my hon. Friend the Member for Eastleigh (Mr. D. Price).
