§ 33. Mr. WINDSOR
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many skilled workers have emigrated abroad each year since the War; and to what industries they belonged?
I am sending the hon. Member a reprint of tables published in the Board of Trade Journal of 28th August, 1924, in which the particulars he desires are given for each of the years 1921 to 1923. Corresponding particulars were not compiled for earlier post-War years, and the particulars for 1924 are not yet completed.
If hon Gentlemen desire it, I could have that done, but a copy of the figures may be obtained on application to the Board of Trade.
§ Mr. WARDLAW-MILNE
Is it not a fact that the bulk of our expert workmen are going to America and other protected countries?
