HC Deb 20 April 1931 vol 251 c596
42. Mr. LEES

asked the Minister of Agriculture what action he proposes to take as a result of the decision of the Suffolk Wages Committee to reduce the agricultural labourers' wages to 28s. per week.


I have decided to exercise my powers under Section 6 of the Agricultural Wages (Regulation) Act, and have addressed a communication to the Suffolk Agricultural Wages Committee directing them to reconsider their recent decision.
