HC Deb 08 February 1962 vol 653 c590
8. Mr. Fisher

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations whether, in accordance with the recommendations of the Oversea Migration Board, the Government intend to renew the Commonwealth Settlement Act when it expires this year.

Mr. Braine

Yes, Sir. It is proposed to introduce legislation during the present Session to renew the Commonwealth Settlement Acts for a further five years.

Mr. Fisher

Is my hon. Friend aware that I am grateful for that Answer which will, I know, be acceptable to hon. Members on both sides of the House who are interested in this matter, and also to the main receiving countries in the Commonwealth?
