HC Deb 03 April 1951 vol 486 c26
51. Mr. Russell

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will now ease the currency restrictions imposed on emigrants to Canada.

Mr. Gaitskell

I am afraid that this is, still not possible.

Mr. Russell

Does not the right hon. Gentleman think it very advisable to do everything possible to stimulate emigration to Canada? In view of the improved dollar position, will not he look into the matter again?

Mr. Gaitskell

That is one of the considerations kept under continuous review.

Mr. A. R. W. Low

Has the right hon. Gentleman discussed it recently with his opposite number in Canada and with the Government of Canada?

Mr. Gaitskell

I am not aware of any recent official or Ministerial discussions.

Mr. Low

Will the Chancellor have discussions as soon as possible?
