HC Deb 20 November 1947 vol 444 cc202-3W
49. Mr. S. Shepherd

asked the Minister of Labour if men registered as agricultural workers who have served in the Armed Forces for a period of six months or more, can now be released for agricultural work.

Mr. Isaacs

As I said in reply to the Hon. Member for Newbury (Mr. Hurd) on 30th October, experienced farm workers have not been called up since February, 1946, and those who were called up before that date have already been offered release in Class B.
