asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can make a statement on the Jewish refugee children at present in Spain and Portugal; and whether arrangements are being made to remove them to Palestine or some other place of safety?

My information is that the number of refugee children at present in Spain and Portugal is very small. The number of visas available is ample for their needs. The difficulty of transport is still great but the best means to overcome it are being worked out.
