ORAL QUESTION for Question Time at the part-session in July 2008 pursuant to Rule 109 of the Rules of Procedure by Neena Gill to the Commission

 Subject: Seasonal migrant workers

The UK is currently suffering from shortages of migrant workers in the agricultural sector. I recently visited a fruit farm in Herefordshire where I saw for myself what living and working conditions are like for migrant workers from other Member States. What can the Commission do to ensure that seasonal worker shortages have the lowest possible impact on local economies and that basic standards in respect of living and working conditions are upheld?
