As the answer in eludes a number of figures, I will circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the answer:

The number of persons who left permanent residence in the United Kingdom to take up permanent residence in non-European countries was 35,697 (34,310 British and 1,387 aliens) in 1931, and 28,048 (26,988 British and 1,060 aliens) in 1932, while the number of persons who left permanent residence in non-European countries and arrived to take up permanent residence in the United Kingdom was 73,056 (71,382 British and 1,674 aliens) in 1931, and 77,273 (75,595 British and 1,678 aliens) in 1932.

Note. Residence for a year or more is treated as permanent residence.
