HC Deb 16 November 1914 vol 68 c242W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has asked the Governments of the Dominions if they are aware that Germans and Austrians have already begun to emigrate to their friends in the Dominions in order to avoid the consequences of the War; and whether the Governments of the Dominions are willing that people from enemy countries should be allowed to obtain land and employment in our Dominions which may be badly wanted by our own people at the conclusion of the War?


The hon. Member drew my attention to a statement to this effect in the case of Australia, and I communicated a copy to the Government of the Commonwealth in whose hands the matter must rest. I have no other information on the subject.
