HC Deb 27 June 1906 vol 159 cc923-4
MR. HAZLETON (Galway, N.)

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will inquire from the Canadian Government how long its system of paying £1 per head to shipping agents in Ireland for emigrants to Canada has been in force; what is the total amount of money that has been expended in this way in Ireland by the Canadian Government; and whether the Canadian Government will supply information as to the names and addresses of those shipping agents in Ireland to whom it has paid any such money during the past five years.


The Canadian Government will be asked for the information which the hon. Member desires to obtain.
