HC Deb 22 October 1946 vol 427 cc349-50W
Sir J. Mellor

asked the Minister of Labour what official publication defines the meaning of the industry letters ZTF, ZTG, ZVN, ZVO and SA, referred to in S.R. & O., 1946, No. 1278 and other statutory instruments.

Mr. Ness Edwards

The industries represented by the industry letters referred to are as follow:

ZTF Farming, Stockrearing and Forestry
ZVN Market Gardening, Fruit, Flower and Seed Growing
SA Coalmining

The letters ZTF and ZVN relate to workers insured under the Agricultural Scheme and-the letters ZTG and ZVO to those under the General Scheme. So far as I am aware there is no official publication containing this information.

Sir J. Mellor

asked the Minister of Labour how many persons whose unemployment books bore the industry letters ZVN were prosecuted or otherwise dealt with under the Control of Engagement Orders, 1945, as though the letters were ZVM; and with what result.

Mr. Ness Edwards

There were no such prosecutions and, though precise records are not available, it is not thought that any persons with unemployment books bearing the letters ZVN were treated as if the letters were ZVM except those who were within the scope of the Orders on the other ground that they were normally employed in Agriculture (including Horticulture).
