§ 51. Miss Rathbone
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the shortage of agricultural labourers and of recruits for the Women's Land Army, he will arrange for the admission to that army of alien women when they are personally suitable and when there are no well authenticated grounds known to the Home Office for suspecting them to be politically untrustworthy?
Women's Land Army regulations already permit the acceptance of suitable aliens for enrolment, provided that consent is obtained from the local office of the Ministry of Labour with which they are registered.
§ Miss Rathbone
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is a strong impression that there are many of these refugees, including those of enemy extraction, who would very much like to join the Women's Land Army?
