Are Refugees an Asset?

I’m republishing on this blog the text of an anonymous pamphlet that was published by PEP (Political and Economic Planning) in September 1944, during an earlier public debate about the fate of refugees and the United Kingdom. I’ve stuck this up on the web before, on older incarnations of this website, and now I’m going to stick it up again.

I’m reproducing the text unabridged from the original pamphlet across five blogposts (not including this one), following the major divisions in the text; the only significant change I’ve made is that I’ve placed the “Summary” at the start, rather than at the end of the pamphlet, to serve as an introduction to new readers.

  1. SUMMARY / ARE REFUGEES AN ASSET?
  2. HOW MANY WERE ADMITTED?
  3. HOW MANY WILL BE LEFT AFTER THE WAR?
  4. WHAT HAVE BEEN THE EFFECTS?
  5. REFUGEES IN POST-WAR BRITAIN
