HC Deb 15 February 1973 vol 850 cc390-1W
Mr. Ralph Howell

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will state the total cost incurred in respect of the Asians expelled from Uganda; and if he will compare this with the amount of help given to British nationals expelled from Uganda.

Mr. R. Carr

Final figures for the costs of the reception and resettlement of United Kingdom passport holders expelled from Uganda cannot yet be calculated: but revised Supplementary Estimates now laid before Parliament include £5.5 million for the Uganda Resettlement Board for the financial year 1972–73. No separate figures are kept which relate to the ethnic origin of those involved. We have also contributed £250,000 to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees towards the costs of resettling stateless Asians expelled from Uganda.
