HC Deb 03 August 1943 vol 391 c2083
51. Major Lloyd

asked the Minister without Portfolio whether a scheme of Dominion and Colonial emigration is contemplated as part of the Government's post-war plans; and whether preliminary discussions with Dominion Governments and Colonial authorities have yet been initiated?

The Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs (Mr. Attlee)

I have been asked to reply. The position is as stated in my reply to the hon. Member for Bournemouth (Sir L. Lyle) on 15th July, to which I cannot at present add.

Major Lloyd

Will the right hon. Gentleman be in a position to assure the House that every effort will be made, in co-operation with the Dominions, to avoid the mistakes which were made after the last war?

Mr. Attlee

I assure my hon. Friend that every effort will be made to avoid all mistakes, whether they were made after the last war or not.
