asked the President of the Board of Trade Why, in the statistical abstract for the several British Overseas Dominions and Protectorates for each year from 1905 to 1919 (Cmd. 1630), the number of emigrants leaving Canada cannot be stated, whereas this information is available in regard to all other Dominions; and whether the figures to complete the Return can be obtained from the Canadian authorities?
The statement referred to by the hon. Member was submitted to, and approved by, the Canadian Statistical authorities before the issue of the volume in which it is contained. There are no official statistics of emigration from Canada.
