HC Deb 13 March 1913 vol 50 c443W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he can give information or will have inquiries made as to the Welsh people in Canada on the following points: Their number, according to the last Dominion Census; the districts or localities in which such are generally or specifically located, and the number of men, women, and children, respectively, of Welsh nationality in each of such districts or localities; the respective employments in which Welsh people in Canada are engaged; and any financial and other statistics, showing the progress, material and otherwise, of Welsh people generally in Canada?


The Census of 1901 only showed the number of Welsh-born persons and of Welsh immigrants, and the Census figures of 1911, so far as they have reached me, do not give any of the information asked for. Unless it is contained in the later volumes of the Census, I fear that it would be difficult to give it.
