§ Sir A. Bossom
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will, through his Department's officials, publicise among farm workers the danger of children riding on tractors.
My Department has already published a leaflet on the prevention of accidents with farm machinery which refers to this danger, and warns that children should never be carried on tractors. The leaflet is distributed to workers and to farmers. I am sending a copy to my hon. Friend.
