HC Deb 19 March 1929 vol 226 c1600

asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs how many of the families or individuals who since January, 1928, have applied for assisted passages to Canada and Australia have failed to satisfy the medical or other requirements of the Dominions; and how many, having satisfied those requirements, have been refused an assisted passage by the Dominion authorities and the Imperial authorities, respectively?

Captain MARGESSON (Lord of the Treasury)

I have been asked to reply. The Dominion authorities are unable to furnish the information asked for in the first part of the question. As regards the second part, no applicants are refused assisted passages, if they satisfy the medical tests, and also fulfil the other requirements of the Dominion Governments, that is to say, are going to approved employment and are likely to succeed in that employment.
