HC Deb 09 October 1945 vol 414 cc84-5W
Mr. Henderson

Stewart asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he has now made further inquiries or approached the National Farmers Union of Scotland, or the Farm Servants Union, as to the demand of both farmers and farm servants for the cancellation of the standstill order which ties farm workers to individual farms; and whether he has any statement to make on the matter.

Mr. T. Fraser

The continuation of the Essential Work (Agricultural) (Scotland) Order is bound up with the general question of the future of labour controls, on which my right hon. Friend, the Minister of Labour, will be making a statement shortly.
