36. Lieut.-Colonel Byers

asked the Minister of Labour what group of agricultural workers in the Army, Navy and R.A.F., respectively, have been released under block arrangements in Class B up to the last convenient date.

Mr. Isaacs

There are at present no arrangements in operation for the black release of agricultural workers from the Forces in Class B.

Lieut,-Colonel Byers

Will the Minister inform the House how agricultural workers can be released under Class B?

Mr. Isaacs

I have answered the Question on the Order Paper. I would like to add for the information of the question of getting more agricultural workers into the industry is being effectively pursued.

*The Minister has since corrected these figures to Groups 23 to 60.
