§ Lieut.-Colonel ARCHER-SHEE
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that Mr. F. Tolman, 3, Albemarle Street, Clerkenwell, E.C., a, demobilised soldier, applied to the Civil Liabilities (Military Service) Committee over ten weeks ago for a grant to open a small business, and that many subsequent letters have failed to elicit any reply?
§ Sir R. HORNE
I have been asked to answer this question. The decision in this case was delayed for preliminary inquiries of the local war pensions committee. Mr. Tolman has now been awarded a grant of £40, and this decision has been communicated to him.
