HC Deb 08 March 1948 vol 448 c119W
Mr. Hollis

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the shortage of agricultural labour in Wiltshire and in view of the fact that applications to remain at work there have been received from 123 German prisoners of war beyond the quota, he will increase the quota.

Mr. T. Williams

Having regard to the availability of other workers, I do not think it necessary or desirable to increase still further the number of German ex-prisoners allowed to remain for agricultural work in 1948.
