While studying various projects for group resettlement of refugees and displaced persons, the Intergovernmental Committee on Refugees has allotted only $400,000 for the transportation of individuals to new homes overseas, it is revealed in the report submitted today to the sixth plenary session of the Intergovernmental Refugee Committee by Sir Herbert Emerson, the organization’s director.

The role of voluntary relief agencies in facilitating the emigration and resettlement of refugees was praised in the report, which cited the assistance given by the Joint Distribution Committee in transporting refugees from Shanghai.
