asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he has yet received from his outdoor officers reports as to the extent of unemployment among farm workers in their respective areas?

The reports referred to in my reply to the hon. Member on the 30th January have now been received and are under consideration.

Can the right hon. Gentleman say when they will be published and made available for Member?

They will not be able to provide exact statistical information, but I will see if anything can be done in the way of a general report.

Will they be put in such a form that it will be easy to see the way in which the unemployment has increased during the last six or eight months?

I am not able to commit myself to publication, but as far as the facts have been secured that information will be given.
