HC Deb 05 December 1945 vol 416 c2297
1. Mr. Driberg

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how soon he expects to be able to announce an E.V.T. scheme for colonial Servicemen.

The Secretary of State for the Colonies (Mr. George Hall)

Colonial Servicemen in the United Kingdom are taking advantage of the general E.V.T. schemes for the Forces. I hope to make an early announcement of a further E.V.T. scheme for these Servicemen on their release from the Services.,

Mr. Driberg

May we take it that when the scheme is announced it will not be so hedged about with restrictions and qualifications that very few men will be able to benefit by it?

Mr. Hall

I would ask my hon. Friend to await the announcement of the scheme.
