asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is satisfied with the system of payment through A.E.Cs. for German prisoner-of-war labour; and if he will consider in order to increase output, a system of payment by results, if possible with an increased incentive to the prisoners themselves.

I am satisfied that the present system of payment is working satisfactorily. As regards the second part of the Question, I would refer the hon. Member to the statement by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for War on 24th June, giving details of a revised System of incentives for prisoners of war.
