Background: A group of 49 Yugoslav refugees - 11 of them tuberculosis cases - arrived at London airport, Dec 10, to be received by representatives of the British Council for Aid to Refugees.
Three of them were immediately sent to hospitals in the London area for treatment, 27 went on to a home for refugees where they will receive an intensive English course until employment and accommodation has been found for them. The others spent the night at a hostel before travelling to their new homes in Britain.
The arrival of the first group of refugees suffering from tuberculosis follows a decision by the British Government, as their contribution to the World Refugee Year, to allow 200 homeless persons affected by TB to settle in the United Kingdom.
A second party of refugees, coming from Austrian camps, is due to arrive in London Dec 14 or 15.
