asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the amount of Chinese, Malayan and Indian immigration into Malaya since the end of the war.
With my hon. Friend's permission, I shall arrange for a table of migration statistics for the period January, 1947, to June, 1950, to be circulated in the OFFICIAL REPORT. Statistics for the post-war period before 1947 are not available.
Following is the table:
|Excess of Emigrants over Immigrants, January, 1947, to June. 1950||2,061||56,10||30,097|
Have the Malayan Government power to control the immigration?
That is another question.
