§ Sir Bernard Braine
asked the Lord Privy Seal what steps are being taken to encourage emigration to the Falkland Islands from the United Kingdom and elsewhere in the Commonwealth.
§ Mr. Luce
Emigration from the United Kingdom or from other Commonwealth countries to the Falkland Islands is primarily a matter for the Falkland Islands Government. There is naturally concern at the drift of population away from the islands. A pilot scheme involving the use of labour from St. Helena is currently under consideration by the Falkland Islands and St. Helena Governments.
