English, Welsh Farmers Asked to Train Refugees

Download PDF for this date

The National Farmers Union has asked its branches to find employment for refugees on farms in England and wales. The refugees would be trained for three to four months and then paid at rates fixed for the district by the Agricultural Wages Committee. It is planned later to send the refugees to British colonies and dominions. A number of farmers in Lancashire and Yorkshire have already offered training opportunities.
