Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture – in the House of Commons on 8th October 1942.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he can assure the House that sufficient labour is available to harvest the sugar-beet crop?
Much depends on the weather, but I think the arrangements made this year should provide enough labour to assist farmers in harvesting the sugar-beet crop.
Can my right hon. Friend say whether farmers are being encouraged to avail themselves of the labour of soldiers stationed in their district?
They ought to exhaust all possible alternative forms of labour before they apply for military help.
