HC Deb 11 December 1922 vol 159 cc2403-4W
Lieut.-Colonel CROFT

asked the Home Secretary what was the average yearly emigration from the United Kingdom in the seven years ending 1914, and for the seven years since 1914?


I have been asked to reply. The only figures available for the purposes of comparison for the two periods are the recorded balances of outward over inward passengers of British nationality travelling between the United Kingdom and places out of Europe and not within the Mediterranean Sea. According to these figures the average yearly emigration in the periods specified was as follows:

Period 1908–1914 185,740
Period 1915–1921 41,036
