Britain Establishes Temporary Camp in Tripolitania for 2,000 Refugees from Europe

A temporary camp for 2,000 European refugees will be established in Tripolitania by the British Government, with the cooperation of the United States, Commons was told today by Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden.

Replying to a question, Eden said that the Government, in view of the increasing number of refugees arriving from Europe, had been concerned to find a suitable place for their temporary accommodation in addition to those already arranged.

Refugees in the Tripolitania camp will be housed there until it is possible to send them back to their countries of origin or to find other places of permanent residence. The United States. Eden said, is fully cooperating in questions of staff and maintenance.
