HC Deb 26 June 1958 vol 590 c42W
66. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations if he is aware of the case of Mr. William Robertson, of Aberdeen, a skilled tradesman who went to Canada on the official Canadian representation that remunerative employment in his trade would be found there for him and to whom an assisted passage loan was made, but who found no such employment in his skilled trade, had to return to Scotland, and is now being pursued by the Canadian Government Immigration Service for a return of the balance amounting to £60 14s. 7d. of that loan; and if he will make representations to the Canadian Government authority to ensure that justice is done to Mr. Robertson.

Mr. Alport

As soon as I have completed inquiries into the facts of this particular case, I will write to the hon. Member.
