HC Deb 11 June 1913 vol 53 cc1621-2

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether his attention has been called to the fact that 3,000 more emigrants sailed from the Clyde on 7th June; whether he has observed that a similar number have been leaving Glasgow for weeks past; and whether he has any information as to the localities from which those people are emigrating and their occupations?


The passenger lists for 7th June have not yet been received at the Board of Trade, but I am aware that for some time past the number of emigrants from Scotland has been considerable. The Report on Emigration and Immigration in 1912, which will contain information as to occupations of emigrants, is now in a forward state of preparation.
