§ 56. Mr. HORE-BELISHA
asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he has now received a reply to his representations to His Majesty s Government in Canada in respect of the deportations to this country during recent months?
I am not yet in a position to add anything to the answers which I gave to the hon. Member in reply to questions on this subject which he addressed to me on the 21st April last.
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
Has the right hon. Gentleman any reason to believe that this practice of deporting British subjects from Canada to England has now ceased?
I cannot say that it has ceased, because, curiously enough, I believe, for the first time almost in the history of this country, there have been more people arriving in this country from the Dominions than migrants. That explains much, but the hon. Member will know perfectly well that it is a matter entirely within the jurisdiction of the Dominion itself. I have, however, made representations.
