§ 1. Mr. Lambert
asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he can make any statement at to immigration into this country from the Irish Free State.
The Under-Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs (Marquess of Hartington)
This question has been carefully examined by an inter-departmental committee and the general conclusion reached is that while there is clear evidence of an increasing immigration from the Irish Free State into Great Britain, the immigrants are being absorbed into employment and are not tending to increase disproportionately the unemployment figures.
§ Sir William Davison
Has the report of the inter-departmental committee, which has been sitting on this subject for some eight or nine months, been published? The report has been promised us for a long time.
