HC Deb 18 February 1947 vol 433 cc158-9W
Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Minister of Labour the number of men between the ages of 21 and 39 years who have been permitted to emigrate to each Dominion respectively, since June 1945.

Mr. Isaacs

Since September, 1945, persons leaving the country have not been required to obtain exit permits and I have no information as to the number of men between these ages who have gone independently to the Dominions since June, 1945. Under the special arrangements referred to in my reply to a Question on nth February last by the hon. Member for Orpington (Sir W. Smithers)—184 men between 21 and 39 were included in the group of ex-Servicemen who went to Australia recently.
