HC Deb 13 February 1941 vol 368 cc1524-5
58. Mrs. Tate

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that there are many instances of farmers, farm bailiffs and horticultural gardeners who registered as such instead of as agricultural workers; that these men are liable to be called up for military service to the detriment of home food production; and, as they are key-men in agriculture, will he arrange for their retention and inclusion in the list of reserved occupations?

Mr. Hudson

Farmers, farm bailiffs and market gardeners are already included in the Schedule of Reserved Occupations.
