§ 56. Major Legge-Bourke
asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will now issue instructions to county W.A.E.C.s to forward all applications for Class B releases to agriculture which they have received and rejected since VE-Day without requiring applicants to re-apply.
§ Mr. T. Williams
No, Sir. The new arrangements for the release of agricultural workers will be conducted under a block release system and individual applications are not necessary. I am sending to the hon. Member a statement explaining the arrangements for the release of agricultural workers under the Class B block release scheme.
§ Colonel Thornton-Kemsley
Can the Minister say whether the arrangements which he has announced apply to Scotland as well as to England and Wales?
