Mr. MacKINNON:

The scheme to bring these immigrants to Canada is a dominion scheme, and it is in connection with such that I have made my announcement.

That means that you have not consulted with the Drew government at all?

Mr. ISNOR:

Following the statement made by the Acting Minister of Mines and Resources, I should like to ask if there has been any change in the landing regulations covering immigrants coming to Canada. I understand that the former arrangement was that they would land at Halifax, but now it appears that they are going to be landed at Montreal.

Mr. MacKINNON:

I stated that the main points for airborne traffic would be Montreal and Toronto, but I might add that that does not mean that the immigrant must carry on to Montreal or to Toronto or stop at Montreal or Toronto. The scheme is liquid enough to carry these immigrants on to their destination.

Mr. McIVOR:

I appreciate the minister's statement that immigration offices will be opened in Belfast. That will certainly improve the standard of immigration from other parts of the British empire.

There has been no change in those arrangements. As a matter of fact we are arranging for increased numbers of immigrants to come by ship.

Can the Acting Minister of Mines and Resources tell the house how many immigrants other than displaced persons entered Canada in 1946 or 1947 or since the war?

May I ask the minister how much it will cost for passage by air for immigrants under the dominion scheme?

Mr. MacKINNON:

I have not the figures before me, but I believe that the cost to the immigrant is approximately the same as under previous schemes.
