I am much obliged to the hon. and learned Gentleman and his right hon. Friend the Home Secretary for their very sympathetic action and understanding in this problem. Is the figure in mind about 500, in addition to the 210 handicapped refugees who have been allowed to enter this country? May we take it that Her Majesty's Government have in mind the entry into this country of approximately 1,000 handicapped refugees? If so, that is a very excellent contribution to the wonderful compaign on behalf of World Refugee Year.
