HC Deb 08 March 1945 vol 408 c2238W
Wing-Commander Errington

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is prepared to transfer members of the W.L.A., in spite of the contract of service, from an employer if the conditions are such that there is a reasonable apprehension of moral danger to that member.

Mr. Hudson

I have no authority to withdraw a Land Army member whose services are needed on the farm where she is employed so long as the member herself wishes to remain in her employment and her employer is also satisfied. Should a Land Army member desire to leave her employment through apprehension of moral danger, the Land Army organisation is ready to make other placing arrangements. Any Land Army member whose public behaviour is such as to reflect upon the good name of the organisation is liable to discharge from membership.
