21. Colonel DAY

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Dak-lyne Farm, near Windsor, Nova Scotia, has now received official recommendation; of so, how many boys from England have passed through the farm and been placed in situations; how many boys are sent out monthly; and at what ages the boys are eligible?


The Dakeyne Farm, Nova Scotia, has been used since 1913 as a training centre for boys from the Dakeyne Street Lads Club, Nottingham, which is officially recognised by the Dominion Government and the Oversea Settlement Committee as a juvenile migration society. Boys between 14 and 17 years of age have been trained at the farm and placed in employment at the rate of about 12 per annum. The total number deait with up to date is about 130.

Can the right hon. Gentleman say if any assistance is given to the boys towards passage money or outfit?


I could not give details without notice, but I understand assistance is given.
