HC Deb 31 July 1941 vol 373 c1543W
Major Markham

asked the Minister of Labour how many poultry farmers have been called up for military service this year; and whether, in the interests of food production, all such workers will in future be treated as agricultural workers?

Mr. Bevin

The information asked for in the first part of the Question is not available. In reply to the second part, I cannot see my way to alter the present ages of reservation for poultry farmers which were fixed in consultation with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries.
