HC Deb 06 December 1949 vol 470 cc1686-7
14. Mr. John

McKay asked the Minister of Labour how many foreign agricultural labourers are unemployed and living in hostels waiting to be transferred where they may be required in future; and if this prevents the introduction of any other foreign agricultural workers into this country.
