HC Deb 07 March 1923 vol 161 c542W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, seeing that the United States Government only permits a certain number of British citizens to land in the United States every year, that the United States emigration year ends with June, that the quota of British citizens for the year ending June next who may land in the United States is now nearly reached, and that in the months of May and June British liners will be unable to carry any British nationals to America at the third-class rates, any representations have been made to the Washington Government on this matter?


The answer is in the negative, but the matter is engaging the attention of His Majesty's Government.
