§ 44. Mr. STEWART
asked the President of the Local Government Board if he will state how many men of military age have emigrated from the United Kingdom since the beginning of August?
The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Robertson)
My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. The number of male British subjects over nineteen and under thirty-nine years of age shown by the lists of passengers to countries out of Europe as intending to transfer their permanent residence from the United Kingdom to another country was, during the months of August, September, and October this year, about 13,000. As the lists have been found to include as persons previously resident in this country a not inconsiderable number more properly descrbed as visitors to this country, this total is probably well in excess of the actual number of male emigrants within the limits of age specified.
