Delays in connection with family migration are not, I think, attributable to any defects in the machinery of the Oversea Settlement Committee, but to two great difficulties, namely, the lack of accommodation for families in the country districts overseas, and the question of providing maintenance for families overseas whilst the breadwinners are obtaining the necessary training in land work. As I have already informed my hon. and gallant Friend, these two questions are engaging my particular attention, but I am not yet in a position to make any statement.
