This paper continues the study of the subset selection procedure proposed by van der Laan and van Eeden . In that paper the authors consider a location problem and base their procedure on a continuous loss function. This loss function takes into account the "distance", in parameter values, between the populations under consideration and the best one among the ones in the selected subset. In defining this "distance", they incorporate the notion of "e-best" studied by, e.g., Desu , Lam , van der Laan , Gill and Sharma  and Gill, Sharma and Misra . As an example of their results, van der Laan and van Eeden  consider the case of two normal populations with equal known variances. The present paper develops a similar procedure for scale parameters. The case of two gamma populations with equal known shape parameters is studied in detail.
