HC Deb 19 January 1943 vol 386 c61W
Colonel Carver

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware of the shortage of expert thatchers of corn stacks; and what steps he is taking to train new men?

Mr. Hudson

I realise that the large increase in the acreage of land under cereals calls for additional skilled thatchers. County War Agricultural Executive Committees recognise the demand and are making such arrangements as are practicable in their respective areas to meet it.
