HC Deb 16 November 1939 vol 353 cc861-2W
Mr. Stokes

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that the new police station in Savile Row, which will take the place of Vine Street, is to be designated the Central Station; and whether,

to conscript agricultural labour and to replace it with aliens?

Sir R. Dorman-Smith

I am informed by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Home Department, that the answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. I should, however, draw my hon. Friend's attention to the reply that was given by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State to the question put to him by the hon. Member for North Cumberland (Mr. W. Roberts) on 19th October last.

The answer to the second part of the question is also in the negative. I would point out that farmers and most classes of farm workers are reserved from military service at the age of 21, so that men of and above that age will not be liable to be called up for service with the Armed Forces of the Crown.
