HC Deb 18 February 1924 vol 169 c1324W

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he has any information suggesting that farmers are paying agricultural workers a lower wage than the profits of agriculture warrant; and, if so, has he called the attention of the appropriate Conciliation Committees to that fact?


I have no information of the kind suggested by my right hon. Friend, and in view of the varying conditions of agriculture in this country I think he will agree that, it is impossible to obtain information on which any general statement could be made which would be applicable in all cases. The second part of the question, therefore, does not arise
