HC Deb 28 October 1993 vol 230 c713W
Dr. Twinn

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will name each voluntary organisation which assisted in the reception of Bosnian refugees in 1992; and how much grant each received.

Mr. Charles Wardle

In 1992, the Home Office funded the Refugee Council and the British Red Cross to provide reception arrangements for ex-detainees and other humanitarian cases, and their dependants, whom the Government brought here from the former Yugoslavia at the request of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. In 1992–93, grants of £476,000 and £86,000 were paid to the Refugee Council and British Red Cross, respectively for this purpose.

A full list of organisations making their own arrangements to assist individuals from Bosnia is not available.
