HC Deb 17 November 1966 vol 736 c156W
Mr. Freeson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what progress he has made with his proposals for exploring the need for a voluntary welfare service for immigrants at Heathrow.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

I am glad to say that International Social Service of Great Britain have undertaken, with generous support from the Noel-Buxton Trust and some help from public funds, to provide a service for an experimental period. The object is to enable a practical study to be made of the welfare and social needs of immigrants arriving at the Airport. I shall then consider what welfare facilities are required. The experiment will, I hope, start on 1st December.
