The 1922 British Empire Settlement Act detailed a migration scheme in which Britain and Australia would share the costs of migrants’ passages, settlement schemes and associated public works. Western Australia had proposed what became known as the Group Settlement Scheme. Settlers were to work in groups of 20 to develop a number of dairy farms and be paid for their work. Later each would take on a farm when it was ready for dairying. Western Australia undertook to settle 6,000 families on farms and take 75,000 immigrants. £1,000 was the estimated cost of developing each farm. The Group Settlement Scheme began in 1921 with groups in the Manjimup district, followed by others between Busselton and Augusta, at Denmark, Northcliffe and the Peel Estate south of Perth.
