HC Deb 10 February 1955 vol 536 c238W
Commander Maitland

asked the Minister of Agriculture what factors he takes into account when he makes appointments to the agricultural panels who advise the Ministry of Labour with regard to cases for agricultural deferment from National Service; what is the length of appointment of members of the panel; and how often he reviews the composition of these panels.

Mr. Amory

The agricultural members of these panels are appointed by the subcommittee of the county agricultural executive committee that is responsible for labour matters. They are drawn as far as possible from the membership of the sub-committee, with equal representation for farmers and workers. There is no fixed period of service and no regular review of the composition of the panels.
