HC Deb 30 January 1945 vol 407 c1288W
Mr. Butcher

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether arrangements are being made with the Dominions for the overseas settlement of ex-Servicemen and women and other persons from this country.

Mr. Emrys-Evans

Yes, Sir, His Majesty's Government are well aware of the importance of this question and they have taken it up with Dominion Governments, as regards the settlement overseas both of ex-Servicemen and women and of other persons in this country. Plans, of course, depend upon agreement being concluded with Dominion Governments, and their views on migration are governed by the differing conditions and post-war problems of the various Dominions concerned. I will keep the House informed of progress in the matter.
