HC Deb 28 July 1937 vol 326 cc3116-7W
Major Milner

asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether consultations took place during the recent Imperial Conference with the Minister of Immigration of the Dominion of Canada and the representative of the Saskatchewan Government as to the resumption of immigration; and, if so, with what result?

Marquess of Hartington

My right hon. Friend had an informal consultation with the Canadian Minister in charge of immigration, but not with any representative of the Saskatchewan Government.

As explained by my right hon. Friend in reply to a recent question by the hon. Member for Dewsbury (Mr. Riley), the Canadian Government do not feel the time has yet arrived when they could cooperate in the resumption of assisted migration to Canada.
