§ 52. Mr. Drayson
asked the Minister of Labour if the provisions permitting German prisoners of war to remain in this country for agricultural purposes can be extended to include limestone Quarrying.
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Labour (Mr. Ness Edwards)
I would refer the hon. Member to the replies given to the hon. Member for Oxford (Mr. Hogg) on 27th January and to the hon. Member for Bedford (Mr. Skeffington-Lodge) on 30th October, 1947, of which I am sending him copies.
Will the Minister say whether the word "agriculture" used in this sense includes horticulture and forestry?
