HC Deb 01 May 1907 vol 173 cc866-7
MR. BOWLES (Lambeth, Norwood)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that, in a circular issued by the Emigrants' Information Office, intending emigrants to Canada are informed that if they travel ‡ See (4) Debates, clxix., 540. to Canada as steerage passengers they will be required, on arrival, either to produce a vaccination certificate or to submit to vaccination or to compulsory detention for observation in a quarantine station, while if they travel otherwise than by steerage no such requirements will be made; and whether this is a correct statement of the Canadian regulations on the subject.


The statement in question is substantially correct, though the words "Passengers other than steerage are not examined" might be qualified by adding the words" as a rule."
