HC Deb 07 March 1940 vol 358 c581W
Colonel Burton

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he can now make any statement as to the policy of the Government relative to the introduction of legislation in connection with the rates of wages for agricultural workers?

Sir R. Dorman-Smith

As a result of the discussions which have been taking place recently, I hope to be able to introduce in the near future a short Bill to modify the machinery for fixing minimum wages in agriculture which was set up by the Agricultural Wages (Regulation) Act, 1924.
