HC Deb 27 November 1912 vol 44 cc1250-1
28. Sir H. CARLILE

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether it is the intention of the Government that the Dominions Trade Commission shall issue written Reports dealing with each branch of the subject investigated and as this investigation is concluded; and when, in that case, the Report dealing with emigration may be expected?

The SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Colonel Seely)

It is anticipated that the Commission will issue an interim Report very shortly, covering the evidence so far taken by them. It is rather for the Commission to consider in connection with the question of the form of their final Report whether they will deal with each branch of their subject in a separate document. In any case, their Report on Emigration cannot be expected for some time, as they have still to visit the Dominions.
