asked the Prime Minister what arrangements are proposed for financing the work of the National Committee for Commonwealth Immigrants.
Subject to Parliamentary approval, funds will be provided from a grant-in-aid borne on the Home Office Vote, at an estimated cost of about £100,000 in a full year. Expenditure for the current year will be met by advances from the Civil Contingencies Fund as necessary and a Supplementary Estimate will be presented to Parliament in due course. These financial arrangements in no way affect the responsibilities of my hon. Friend the Joint Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Economic Affairs, Mr. Foley, for the integration of Commonwealth citizens in the United Kingdom.
