New Zealand's First Refugees: Pahiatua's Polish Children

Future staffing

Future staffing

We would make the following observations in regard to future staffing:
  • 1. As some of the essential Polish female workers expect their husbands to arrive in New Zealand in the near future and will leave the camp when their husbands take outside employment, a serious difficulty will arise in manning essential services.
  • 2. As the services of interim army personnel are due to cease on 31 March 1948, the camp authorities will be faced with the problem of replacing them and it is understood that the possibility of fresh personnel being supplied from army sources is practically nil. This raises the question of whether the administration of the camp should not be transferred from army to a civil department which is conversant with the accommodation and control of children.
