§ Colonel DAY
asked the Minister of Agriculture the number of prosecutions that have taken place for failure to pay the minimum rate of wage prescribed under the Agricultural Wages Act and the number of convictions secured, together with the amount of arrears ordered by magistrates to be paid?
I have authorised prosecutions in 11 cases, two of which have already taken place, and convictions secured in both cases. The arrears of wages ordered to be paid were £11 19s. 2½d. and £2 8s.1846W
