| Farmers and Labour. I BRECONSHIRE AND THE SUPPLY. AN ESSENTIAL FOR INCREASED FOOD SUPPLY. The Executive of the Breconshire War Agricultural Committee despatched a telegram to the Chairman of the meeting of the Federated County War Agricultural Committee* recently held in London heartily supporting efforts to secure adequate efficient farm workers, and earnestly urging immediate vigorous action to attain that essential, without which a really substantial in- crease of food supply is impracticable. The Prime Minister ha-s been asked to receive at an early date a deputation from the Federation of County War Agricultural Committees on the subject of recruit- ing of farm workers. The Federation considers that a great mistake in ad- ministration has been made in regard to the methods of selection of the men who have recently been called up, and that the facts disclosed by the census returns have been totally disregarded. It is of opinion that the census should form the basis of the requirements of ag- riculture in respect of skilled men, and that the sur- plus men on those farms which show a f-urplus should (if the facts warrant it) be relegated to farms which show a deficiency. That if there is a deficiency of men on the balance it should be made good by definitely transferring to agriculture soldiers who were skilled labourerers and who are not in Class A. The Federation states with emphasis that the present uncertainty as to whether agriculture will be sufficiently manned or not is leading, and must lead. to a decreased production of food. The farmer must know where he stands, other- wise it will he impossible for him to devise the cropping for 1917 and 1918 to the best interest of the nation. definite and authoritative statement in regard to labour is asked for in order to give farmers that feel ] ing of security and certainty which is absolutely essen- ) tial.
