HC Deb 10 October 1946 vol 427 c350
35. Mr. Gooch

asked the Minister of Education if she will state the extent to which child labour has been employed on the farms this year and if she will revoke forthwith the regulations which permit this.

Mr. Hardman

I have no particulars of the numbers of school children employed in agricultural work this year under the arrangements authorised by Regulations 29 and 30 of the Defence (Agriculture and Fisheries) Regulations. The possibility of revoking the Regulations at the end of this year is now under consideration.
