Form - Amounts Repayable by UK Migrants Returning to UK, Department of Immigration, 1950s Reg. No: HT 1265
- Unused form issued by the Department of Immigration to assisted British Migrants who returned to the UK before their two years was completed. The form was used to list the amounts owed by migrants to the Commonwealth Government. It is part of a collection of migration material collected by Margaret Wood an officer in the Department of Immigration from 1951-1960.
Margaret first worked in the Department of Alien Assimilation which focused on migrants post arrival, before moving to the Assisted Division which handled the reception of assisted European migrants arriving in Melbourne. Her final position was working for the General Assisted Passage Scheme, assisting migrants from the US, Scandinavia and Switzerland who came individually on general ships as opposed to migrant ships. She recalls her time with the Department with great pleasure. She was a young single woman and had just finished an Arts degree at Melbourne University. When she applied to the Public Service, she was placed with the Department of Immigration, as she spoke German. She left when she married in 1961 as per the policy at that time.
