Lists of applicants from among handicapped refugees of long standing will now be prepared abroad on the basis of revised criteria, settled in consultation with the United Kingdom Committee of the World Refugee Year, of which I am circulating a copy in the OFFICIAL REPORT. When these lists are available, consideration will be given, in the light of the offers of sponsorship received by the voluntary bodies concerned, to the numbers who can be admitted.
