HC Deb 22 January 1947 vol 432 c204
28. Commander Noble

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many ex-Servicemen in Ceylon are unemployed; and what schemes have been formulated by the Government of Ceylon for the employment, resettlement and rehabilitation of Ceylonese members of His Majesty's Forces.

Mr. Creech Jones

About 9,500 ex-Servicemen are at present registered as unemployed in Ceylon. In 1945 the Government of Ceylon published a comprehensive guide to postwar employment for ex-Servicemen. A copy of this publication is being placed in the Library.
