HC Deb 27 July 1960 vol 627 c161W
107. Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what British subjects there were among the missionaries and nuns molested, or forced to leave their place of ministry. in the Congo; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. R. Allan

I have received no report of any British missionaries or nuns having been molested in the Congo or forced to leave their places of ministry. A number of British missionaries, mostly single women and those with families decided to leave during the disturbances, but many have preferred to remain. We shall continue to give all possible help to the British missionaries in the Congo, both those who wish to leave and those who decide to stay.
