HC Deb 17 July 1907 vol 178 cc685-6
MR. CLYNES (Manchester, N.E.)

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can make any statement respecting the number of men unemployed in Winnipeg; and whether, seeing that immigrants from this country are regularly adding to the number, he can take any action concerning the statements of emigration agencies and others which mislead people who go to Canada for employment.


No, Sir, I am not aware that there is any number of unemployed in Winnipeg. Employment in Canada generally is easy to get on farms and on railway construction.
