HC Deb 05 July 1934 vol 291 cc2057-8
35. Mr. POTTER

asked the President of the Board of Trade the number of emigrants from this country to the Dominions during the last five years; and the number of immigrants of British nationality into this country from the Dominions during the same period?


The number of British emigrants from the United Kingdom to the Dominions (excluding the Irish Free State) aggregated 182,287 in the five years 1929 to 1933, and the number of British ties, other than fines, for smuggling offences?


My attention has been drawn to this case and I have noted the suggestion made by my hon. Friend.
