HC Deb 21 February 1972 vol 831 c210W
Mr. Coleman

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what action Her Majesty's Government intends taking to implement Resolution 508 of the Council of Europe Consultative Assembly, which urges that humanitarian assistance be given to Greek citizens who suffer exile; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Anthony Royle

Her Majesty's Government have taken note of Resolution 508 of the Consultative Assembly of the Council of Europe. They are, however, unable to support the proposal that an extraordinary fund should be set up under the auspices of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to provide for Greek citizens who have since 1967 gone to live in countries other than their own.
