§ 6. Mr. ROWLANDS
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture, in what counties there has been a rise in she wages of agricultural labourers since July last; and what is the average percentage of the rise and the present average wage in those counties?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD OF AGRICULTURE (Sir Harry Verney)
I regret that precise information of the nature desired by my hon. Friend is not in the Board's, possession.
§ Mr. ROWLANDS
Has the Board any means at its disposal for obtaining more accurate information with regard to individual counties?
§ Sir H. VERNEY
It is rather a difficult matter, as the increases in wages are not confined to one county, or to one part of a county. I will see what can be done to meet my hon. Friend.
