asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs how many migrants from the United Kingdom have entered Canada during the last 10 years?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for DOMINION AFFAIRS (Mr. Malcolm MacDonald)
The number of migrants from the United Kingdom entering Canada during the latest 10 years for which figures are available, that is, the 10 years ended 31st March, 1934, was 353,855.
§ Brigadier-General NATION
In view of the fact that during the same period something like 500,000 foreigners and 200,000 Americans entered Canada, does not the hon. Gentleman think the time has come when British migration should be further encouraged
§ Mr. MacDONALD
That is a matter primarily for the Canadian Government. We are ready to do our part as soon as conditions are favourable.
