HC Deb 20 May 1884 vol 288 c852

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether he has yet received the Report as to the present condition of State-aided Emigrants from Ireland to Canada who were in a state of distress in Toronto in February last?


A telegram has been received from the Governor General, stating that the agent at Toronto reports the departure of all the immigrants who arrived there this year, all having found places. The telegram goes on to say that agricultural labour to any extent is in demand, and also that there is a large demand for navvies on the Canadian Pacific Railway, and that the prospects generally are satisfactory.
