HC Deb 28 January 1941 vol 368 cc438-9W
Mr. De la Beérc

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in connection with mobile gangs to carry through the drainage schemes, he will take steps to increase the agricultural minimum rate of pay, which is at present Is. an hour, so as to bring it more closely into line with mobile gangs who are employed on camp construction or demolition work in London, in view of the fact that many men who would be available are attracted away because of the higher rates of pay?

Mr. Hudson

No, Sir.
