I-ONPON, March 22-The problem of
proUllng employment ,nd proper habi
tations Tor the Belgian refugees, both In
Holland and In England, la daily grow
ing more urgent, In the opinion of Percy
Alden. member of Parliament, who has
represented the British government in Ha
dealings with the refugee question since
the beginning of the war.
The number of Belgian refugees in Eng
land la now officially estimated, accord
ing to a government statement In the
House of Commons, at 1S0.000, r.ot in
cluding 1R.OW wounded soldiers In Brlt
llsh hospitals. This total consists of ,-
000 men, tS,0W women nntl 46.0UO children
under 16.
"I feel very strongly," says Dr. Alden
In a statement to the public, "that,
through lack of work and proper hous
ing, these Belgians run a serious risk
of returning home at the end of the war
In a demoralised and deteriorated condi
tion. In Holland especially the method
ot dealing with the refugees is still of a
temporary and unsatisfactory nature;
they are living In churches, schools,
barns, sheds and barges, and the food
they are receiving is none too good. As
to the employment question, llttlo or no
attempt lias been male to deal with It.
either In Holland or England.
"I have made several visits to Holland
at the request of the president of the
local government board, to Investigate
conditions there. England and Holland
are faced with a very awkward task, but
a serious attempt will have to be made,
and that soon, to pr vlde remunerative
work and adequate resilience for theso
"My belief la that the next step khould
be the building of somt thousands of
wooden huts, each containing three
rooms, which could be constructed by the
refugees themselves, and could be taken
to pieces at the end ot the war and trans
ferred to various parU of Belgium to
be used as dwellings until permanent
hornea can be built. The building of the.
huta could be made to provldo work for
many thousand refugees. I calculate
that at least .V0,000 will be required for
the adequate launching of this scheme.
It Is the- only way I know In which a
rroper semblance of family life can be
restored to these Belgians during their
temporary exile from their own country."
