HC Deb 04 July 1949 vol 466 c134W
Sir H. Morris-Jones

asked the Minister of Agriculture how many European volunteer workers at Pool Park Camp, Ruthin, Denbighshire, were unemployed during the recent winter months, and for what periods; what rate of wages were paid them during unemployment; and how much did they pay for their board and lodgings at the camp.

Mr. T. Williams

The number of unemployed in the period 1st November to 31st March averaged 6.7 daily. The men received weekly wages at the minimum rates appropriate to regular agricultural workers, less the standard deduction of 30/- per week for board and lodging.
