HIGHER WAGES AND SHORTER HOURS ON THE LAND

Regional Programme Midland

Are they Practicable ?
A Round-Table Discussion between George Dallas, Harold Green ,
J. H. Wain , and E. Harvey
In the Chair, Earl Waldegrave
The Midlands and the West of England both contribute speakers to tonight's discussion, which is being held in a Bristol studio. From the West come Earl Waldegrave , who is a landowner in Somerset, and E. Harvey , a Devon farmer, who will argue that as things are today higher wages and shorter hours are not practicable on the land. From the Midlands comes George Dallas , who will put the case for the agricultural worker. His arguments will be supported by Harold Green , a milk farmer on the outskirts of Coventry. The other Midland speaker is J. H. Wain , who was Chairman of the National Farmers' Union in 1935 ; he will argue that agriculture at present cannot afford either higher wages or shorter hours.
