HC Deb 02 March 1926 vol 192 c1244
84. Mr. HURD

asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs how many families were accepted and placed in Canada last year under the 3,000 family scheme for that year; and what is the present position of the scheme?


The number of families who were placed under the 3,000 families scheme during 1925 was 480. 926 families have been accepted for settlement during 1926, of whom 11 have already sailed. The reports on the working of the scheme, and the letters which have been received from the settlers, are very encouraging.


Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether the bulk of these families are drawn from urban or rural areas?


These are rural families.
