§ 14. Brigadier-General NATION
asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he is aware that the Danish Minister of Agriculture proposes visiting Canada in the near future to make a tour of the farming districts of Nova Scotia, with a view to the possibility of extending the existing Danish settlements in that province; and whether, in view of the fact that there are already over 34,000 Danes settled in the various provinces, he will take steps to enable this country to push on its proposals for land settlement in Canada?
The SECRETARY of STATE for DOMINION AFFAIRS (Mr. J. H. Thomas)
I have no information as to the first part of the question. As to the 792 second part, the position was indicated in my answer to my hon. and gallant Friend of 6th November on the subject of land settlement schemes in Canada.
§ Brigadier-General NATION
If I supply the right hon. Member with particulars will he make inquiries?
§ Mr. ANNESLEY SOMERVILLE
In view of what has been said by the Prime Minister of Canada and other Dominion statesmen as to the need for re-starting an Empire emigration policy as soon as possible, will my right hon. Friend consider calling a conference of Empire representatives on this subject?
