§ 73. Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office what were the assurances that the Chelsea Commissioners received which led them to suppose that it would be distinctly to the advantage of Gunner Smith to be allowed to emigrate to Australia; and if he will say by whom these assurances were given and whether they were verbal or in writing?
§ Mr. FORSTER
These assurances were contained in letters from the Assistant Superintendent of the Immigration Department of the Governments of New South Wales and Victoria and from the Secretary of the Naval and Military Emigration League.
