HC Deb 09 July 1923 vol 166 c951W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the desirability of assessing at an actual cash value the inclusion in the remuneration offered to agricultural labourers of a free cottage and garden or cottage, he will consider as soon as occasion offers the enforcement of such assessment by law whenever any agreement is made between the employer and the employed?


I am not aware of any general desire among the agricultural community for action on the lines indicated by the hon. Member, and I see considerable difficulty in enforcing any such assessment.
