§ Lieut.-Colonel ARCHER-SHEE
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that Mr. E. H. Salmon, 12, Am well Street, Finsbury, applied on 11th June for a grant from the Civil Liabilities Committee in order to restart his drapery business, and that up to the present he has not received this grant; and whether steps can be taken to expedite all cases of men seeking this grant?
§ Mr. WARDLE
I am aware that an application for assistance has been made, as mentioned in the question, and I am glad to be able to inform the hon. and gallant Member that the case has now been decided, and that a grant will shortly be paid. I can assure the hon. and gallant Member that efforts are being made to expedite decisions on these cases.
