§ Sir CLEMENT KINLOCH-COOKE
asked the percentage of the emigration from this country to the United States and the British Dominions oversea, respectively, for the years 1909, 1910, and 1911 up to 30th September?
§ Mr. BURNS
The percentage of the emigration from this country to the United States of America and the British Dominions oversea, respectively, during the periods mentioned, is as follows:—
Year. United States of America. All parts of the British Empire out of Europe. 1909 40.8 59.2 1910 31.6 68.4 1911 (nine months) 20.2 79.8
These proportions are based upon the excess, as shown by the returns issued by the Board of Trade, of passengers of British nationality who left the United Kingdom for the places referred to, over the passengers of British nationality who arrived from such places. I should add that the figures for the current year are subject to revision.
