HC Deb 01 August 1952 vol 504 c201W
Major Markham

asked the Minister of Agriculture what information he has as to the numbers or percentages of agricultural workers who do not return to agricultural work after their period of National Service.

Sir T. Dugdale

As agricultural workers in general did not become available for call-up under the National Service Acts, 1948 to 1950, until 1st November, 1951, the number who have already completed their period of National Service is very small. I have no information about the number or percentage that have not returned to agriculture.
