(ČIA) The agricultural sector of the Czech Republic would lose several thousand workers it currently needs in the case of the abolition of the state of emergency. This was stated by Minister of Agriculture Miroslav Toman (ČSSD) in the Czech Television's program Otázky Václava Moravec. According to him, the validity of the necessary visa could expire for ca. three to five thousand foreign workers in agriculture. KDU-ČSL chairman and former Minister of Agriculture Marian Jurečka objected that the situation can be solved even without extending the state of emergency.
