HC Deb 03 December 1947 vol 445 c75W
78. Sir R. Young

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many Colonial immigrants have come to Great Britain in search of employment during 1946 and to the end of October, 1947; how far have those allowed to remain found work in skilled and unskilled occupations; and what, in the main, are these occupations.

Mr. Creech Jones

No distinction is made in such matters between British subjects from the Colonies and other British subjects. I regret, therefore, that no statistics are kept which would enable me to answer the, Question.
