HC Deb 22 July 1968 vol 769 cc9-10W
Mr. Neave

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs who will represent Her Majesty's Government at the unveiling of the memorial at Dachau concentration camp on 8th September; and why he has refused a financial contribution to the Dachau International Committee which has received support from the Federal German Government and the Governments of other European countries.

Mr. Foley

By Her Majesty's Ambassador at Bonn.

Her Majesty's Government, whilst sympathising with the aims of the Dachau Memorial Appeal Fund, have felt unable to subscribe because, owing to the very large number of appeals received for deserving causes, it is necessary as a rule to confine Government aid to those more directly linked with the United Kingdom.
