§ 60. Mr. Gooch
asked the Minister of Agriculture what progress has been made with the consideration of the Gowers Committee's report on health, welfare and safety in non-industrial employment so far as the committee's recommendations relate to agriculture; and whether it is intended to promote legislation in respect of those workers not yet covered by the Factories Act.
Mr. T. Williams
Substantial progress has been made with the examination of 2296 the Committee's recommendations in regard to agriculture, but I cannot at present make any statement regarding legislation.
I quite appreciate the urgency of the matter; that is why it is under very active consideration.
