§ 22. Mr. G. Cooper
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what facilities are being provided for the delegates to come to London for a conference on Ex-Service men's problems as arising in Colonial Territories, including British Honduras, and as proposed by the British Empire Service League.
§ Mr. J. Griffiths
The Conference is being arranged by the British Empire Service League and invitations to attend have been sent by the League to its branches in Colonial Territories. No request has been received for the grant of special facilities to the delegates beyond those which are provided by the League.
§ Mr. Cooper
Can my right hon. Friend say whether, in fact, some assistance has been offered to those who wish to come 2284 as delegates, from Honduras in particular, and, as I have followed this matter during the last two or three years, can he say what steps are being taken to help these ex-Service men to solve these problems and to get their families resettled?
§ Mr. Griffiths
This is a conference which has been convened by the British Empire Service League, who are making all the arrangements.
§ Mr. P. Smithers
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the resettlement of ex-Service men in Jamaica is still not very satisfactory, and can he say whether there are any Jamaican delegates at this conference and whether he will take the opportunity of discussing the problem with them?
§ Mr. Griffiths
I shall be very glad to make arrangements to have the matter discussed with them either by myself or by one of my colleagues.
