asked the Minister without Portfolio what steps the Government proposes to take to assist persons who have been compelled to close their businesses as a result of the operations of the National Service Acts to restart those businesses at the cessation of hostilities.
§ Sir W. Jowitt
This aspect of resettlement is under examination, and, as my hon. Friend will be aware from the statement made by my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade on 14th December last, the position under the licensing provisions of the persons referred to in the Question will be safeguarded. It is too early yet to make a statement as to what further measures may be called for.
