§ 26. Mr. J. E. B. Hill
asked the Minister of Social Security what comparative studies she is making, as part of the Government's general inquiry of the social payments to farmers and persons working in agriculture in member countries of the European Economic Community.
§ Mr. Loughlin
My Department maintains information about the provisions of the Social Security Schemes in member countries of the European Economic Community. In those countries farmers and farm workers are covered either by special provisions under the general scheme or by special schemes or by some combination of the two.
