HC Deb 28 March 1946 vol 421 cc570-1
61. Mr. Keelinģ

asked the Minister of Labour whether he has reconsidered the question of admitting as eligible for resettlement grants, ex-Servicemen who are directors of private companies which are analogous to partnerships and one-man businesses.

Mr. Isaacs

Yes, Sir. I have decided that applications from such persons may, in future, be accepted for consideration, provided that the other conditions of the Resettlement Grants Scheme are satisfied. The revised arrangements will he put into operation as soon as possible.

Mr. Keelinģ

Thank you.

Mr. Bechervaise

Does that answer mean that if applications go before the Minister they will be reconsidered?

Mr. Isaacs

I would like to have notice of that question, but I think the answer would be in the affirmative.
