Major GLYN

asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs if the British Government accept any responsibility for those British subjects who, under approved terms of the Overseas Settlement Act, proceed to one Dominion or another to settle on the land, in so far as to assure them that the promised terms of settlement will be strictly carried out; and if he is aware of cases where the conditions of settlement include the investment of part of their capital in Dominion stocks associated with land development schemes?

The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative: but if the hon. and gallant Member is aware of any such cases, I should be glad if he would let me have particulars.
