HC Deb 02 August 1944 vol 402 c1396W
Mr. Fraser

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what plans exist for the demobilisation and re-absorption into civilian employment of Colonial troops from Mauritius.

Colonel Stanley

The demobilisation of Mauritians serving in the local forces will be undertaken through the machinery of the Nairobi Standing Demobilisation Committee, with whom the Governor of Mauritius will maintain the closest collaboration. Plans are well advanced for the re-absorption into civil life of Mauritians on demobilisation, and a local committee has been appointed by the Governor which will maintain a classified register of these men and make recommendations for their civil re-employment.
