A file of government correspondence relating to the Presbyterian Church of England's request for more information about the British government's evacuation scheme. Subjects covered in the file include Reverend J. Hastings's request for the availability of evacuation and reception areas in Surrey, Kent and the north-east of Hampshire; and the government's reply answering the request for a list of areas, though maintaining that only certain classes will be evacuated, and that there will be no guarantee as to where evacuees will be received, as this is dependent on the railway system.
