HC Deb 04 June 1891 vol 353 cc1616-7
MR. RANKIN (Hereford, Leominster)

I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the Government have now come to any decision with regard to the proposals of the Government of British Columbia with respect to assisting emigration from the Highlands of Scotland and other parts of the United Kingdom to British Columbia?


I had an interview yesterday with a Representative of the Government of British Columbia upon this question of assisting emigration. I told him the conditions upon which we should be prepared to assent generally to the proposals made to us, and he will submit these conditions for the consideration of his Government.
