HC Deb 07 April 1936 vol 310 cc2639-40W

asked the Minister of Labour whether he has any statistics showing the numbers of agricultural workers who have left the Irish Free State to obtain work in Great Britain; whether such immigrants come to take up definite offers of work or whet her any of them use public assistance until they find it; and whether, in view of the unemployment among agricultural workers in this country, he will take steps to restrict the number of such immigrants into this country?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given to a similar question by the hon. Member for Kensington, South (Sir W. Davison) on 23rd March.
