HC Deb 30 November 1931 vol 260 c778W

asked the Minister of Agriculture the total expenditure incurred in operating the 1924 Agricultural Wages Board Act for England, Scotland and Wales, respectively, for the years 1927, 1928, 1929, and 1930?


Expenditure under the Agricultural Wages (Regulation) Act, 1924, for each of the years 1927 to 1930 inclusive (including overhead charges borne on the Vote of the Ministry or of other Departments) was as under:

1927 36,233
1928 35,669
1929 40,719
1930 43,933

It is not possible to allocate the above expenditure as between England and Wales. The Act does not apply to Scotland.
