§ MR. D. MACGREGOR (Inverness-shire)
I wish to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer the following question of which I have given him private, notice: Is it with the knowledge and approval of the Government that a, company is now being formed to induce the crofters and fishermen in the Highlands of Scotland to emigrate to British Columbia, whilst a vast area of land remains uncultivated in their own country?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Sir JOHN GORST, Cambridge. University) (who replied)
My right hon. Friend informs me that the. Government have no knowledge whatever of the facts alleged by the hon. Member.
