HC Deb 31 March 1927 vol 204 c1426
81. Mr. WRIGHT

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he can report any improvement in the administration of the Agricultural Wages Act, 1924, in respect of the payment of women's wages?


The wages and conditions applied by the Agricultural Wages Committees to women workers in the Orders made under the Agricultural Wages (Regulation) Act remain generally unchanged, but I have no reason to suppose that the Orders generally are not sufficient to meet the circumstances of women's employment. In view, however, of representations which have been made to me, I am proposing to make inquiries as to the actual conditions under which women are employed in each county.
