HC Deb 10 April 1946 vol 421 c326W
102 Sir H. Morris-Jones

asked the Minister of Labour whether, in view of the continuous strain on the wives of farmers, particularly on small farms in Wales, he will establish a scheme to render them some domestic relief to enable them to take a short rest to recuperate themselves.

Mr. Isaacs:

I appreciate the difficulties with which farmers' wives have to contend owing to the shortage of domestic workers. My local offices already give their vacancies priority and make every endeavour to fill them. When the National Institute of Houseworkers is set up it will, as I indicated in my statement on 7th February, give special consideration to the needs of the farming community.
