§ 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.
