HC Deb 06 November 1945 vol 415 c1243W
Sir T. Moore

asked the Minister of Labour what i is the position of a former employee as regards reinstatement in a firm which has gone into liquidation and been bought by another business since the employee joined the Forces; and if he will clarify the position generally.

Mr. Isaacs

In a case of this sort, regard must be had to the provisions of Section 7 (2) of the Reinstatement in Civil Employment Act; 1944. If an applicant has rights under the Act, and a change has taken place in the person carrying on the undertaking where he was last employed, or that undertaking has become comprised in another undertaking, any obligation to reinstate him rests on the person for the time being carrying on the undertaking.

Sir T. Moore

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether members of the W.L.A., who extend their service, will have their rights of reinstatement in the posts they left to join the W.L.A. preserved.

Mr. T. Williams

Members of the W.L.A. were not included in the Re-instatement in Civil Employment Act.
