HC Deb 09 May 1923 vol 163 c2406W

asked the Minister of Pensions what compensation he proposes to give to John M'Leod M'Lean M'Intyre, 117, Alexandra Parade, Glasgow, in view of the fact that he has been denied emigration to Canada under the scheme because he is by profession a clerk; and, since M'Intyre was accepted on Form C.S.I., what additional pension can be given?


I have been asked to answer this question in the absence of my hon. and gallant Friend the Parliamentary Secretary to the Department of Overseas Trade. Mr. M'Intyre has no claim to compensation owing to the fact that he was refused a passage to Canada under the Government free passage scheme. This privilege was refused him by the Canadian Government with whom the decision lay, because he had had no agricultural experience.
