HC Deb 06 February 1964 vol 688 c215W
Miss Vickers

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has yet received a further Report of the Commonwealth Immigrants Advisory Council; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Brooke

Yes. I have received the Second Report of the Advisory Council, the major part of which concerns the education of immigrant children, and it is being published this afternoon. The Council recommends that a Government grant should be made to finance the appointment by a voluntary committee of an Advisory Officer, whose responsibility it would be to consult local authorities and voluntary bodies interested in the welfare of Commonwealth immigrants and to collect and circulate information. The Government accept this recommendation, and the necessary provision is being made in Estimates.
