§ 56. Mr. G. M. Thomson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he is taking to extend a system of piecework payment for adult potato gatherers, as a means of eliminating the employment of children on this work.
§ Mr. Snadden
My right hon. Friend has no power to regulate the method of payment of adult potato gatherers, but however they may be remunerated I am afraid that the help of the older school children is still needed in the potato harvest.
