Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. GORDON:

The first agreement was
entered into because of the large number that were coming in. Under the first agreement from 400 to 500 came in yearly. Then in 1928 the agreement was revised by the late government and the number was cut down to about 150 a year. That is the agreement under which we are operating at present.
