HC Deb 24 June 1954 vol 529 cc61-2W
90. Mr. Renton

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations whether the policy recommended in the Report of the Inter-Departmental Committee on Migration Policy, 1934, Command Paper No. 4689, is still the policy of Her Majesty's Government with regard to migration within the Commonwealth; and, in particular, whether paragraph 52 of that Report still expresses the policy of Her Majesty's Government.

Mr. J. Foster

The report of 1934 to which my hon. Friend refers was written in conditions that in many respects are different from those of today and many of its recommendations are scarcely applicable. For a general statement on H.M. Government's policy on migration, I would refer to my statement of 21st April. 1952.
