HC Deb 23 February 1927 vol 202 cc1781-2W

asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether the emigration schemes or the schemes for assisted passages to the Dominions apply to the Union of South Africa; and, if not, the reasons?


I would refer my hon. Friend to paragraph 17 of the Report of the Oversea Settlement Sub-Committee of the Imperial Conference, which shows that the limited field for white labour in South Africa precludes the Government of the Union of South Africa from co-operating in schemes of assisted migration on the lines which have been adopted in other Dominions.
