asked the Minister of Labour how many European volunteer workers have been allocated to work in households on hardship grounds; what kinds of hardship are given consideration; and what is the organisation at his Department for selecting the hardship cases.

Up to 21st July, 130 European Volunteer Workers had been placed ill hardship households, mainly farmers' households in which there have been 115 placings. Other vacancies filled are in households where there is sickness, old age, or a large number of young children. It is for my regional officers to decide which cases call for immediate consideration.
