§ 57. Mr. Turton
asked the Minister of Labour whether he will give an assurance that workers in the Forces who express a wish to go back to agriculture will be granted immediate release in view of the present emergency.
§ The Minister to Labour (Mr. Isaacs)
The Service Departments are already offering Class B release under the block scheme to all agricultural workers who are releasable and have served a minimum of one year in the Forces.
Mr. De la Bère
Why is it that in general the Government are quite unable to provide a supply of agricultural workers, in face of the desperate food situation throughout the country?
§ Mr. Isaacs
I have not the slightest idea what that supplementary question has to do with the Question on the Order Paper.
