§ 2. Mr. Stokes
asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he has any recent figures to show how many people are engaged in digging for gold in the Dominions of Canada and South Africa and in the Commonwealth of Australia?
§ Mr. Stokes
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that I was recently told that something of the order of 460,000 people were engaged in digging for gold? Is he aware that the United States have stopped it and have closed down 200 mines?
