HC Deb 06 May 1941 vol 371 c712W
Mr. McKinlay

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether any use is being made in Scotland of the members of the Pioneer Corps allocated by the War Office for the assistance of agriculture?

Mr. Johnston

A number of men of the Auxiliary Military Pioneer Corps have been made available for agricultural work for a short time until other forms of labour can be found. Under these arrangements plans have been made for the employment of 200 men on arterial drainage and other work connected with agriculture in Scotland. Other proposals are under consideration.
