§ 35. Mr. WHITEHOUSE
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture whether he has any information concerning the number of golf caddies above school age who might, if relieved from the task of attending players, be available for agricultural labour, and so remove the need for the employment of school children?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of AGRICULTURE (Sir H. Verney)
I regret that I am unable to give the information desired by my hon. Friend, but I shall be glad to bring his suggestion to the notice of the parties concerned.
§ Mr. WHITEHOUSE
Would my hon. Friend circularise the clubs in the districts where there is a scarcity of agricultural labour?
§ Mr. FORSTER
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that many clubs do everything they can to induce all their able-bodied employés to engage in agricultural labour?
§ Sir H. VERNEY
Yes, Sir, I think that is so in almost all cases. In cases where it is not so, I should like to adopt the suggestion of my hon. Friend.
