§ 50. Mr. G. Strauss
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will take steps to prevent landladies who have members of the Women's Land Army boarded with them putting up their board and lodging prices to absorb the recent increase in pay?
The position of members of the Women's Land Army who are in private lodgings is safeguarded by the Land Army's Regulations which now require that any member over 18 years of age shall be paid a wage by her employer sufficient to leave her with 22s. 6d. in cash after paying for her board and lodging on an employment week of up to 48 hours in winter and 50 hours in summer.
