HC Deb 05 July 1927 vol 208 cc1089-90
31. Mr. BUXTON

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will give the number of prosecutions that have been instituted by the Ministry under the Agricultural Wages (Regulation) Act, 1924; the amount of fines imposed; and the total amount of wages recovered?

Viscount CURZON

I have been asked to reply. The number of prosecutions which have been instituted under the Agricultural Wages (Regulation) Act, 1924, up to the present date is 176, as a result of which fines amounting to £554 have been inflicted and £3,234 in arrears of wages have been recovered on behalf of the workers concerned.


How many of these cases were found directly by the inspectors and how many were sent along to the Department by trade unions?

Viscount CURZON

I must have notice of that question.
