HC Deb 16 December 1954 vol 535 c182W
86. Mr. P. Wells

asked the Minister of Agriculture how many permits to pay less than the statutory minimum wage under the Agricultural Wages Act were in operation on the latest convenient date; and what proportion of these were granted because of advanced age.

Mr. Amory

Four thousand three hundred and thirty-five permits of exemption were in force on 30th September, 1954. Of these 1,140 were granted on grounds of infirmity due to old age.
