Abstract: We prove a result on representations of separable $ {C^*}$-algebras which has application to, and was in fact motivated by, a problem concerning relations between unitary representations of a second countable locally compact group $ G$ and those of a closed subgroup $ K$, when $ G/K$ is of finite volume. The result is that if an irreducible representation $ \pi $ is contained in $ \int_X {{\pi _x}} d\mu (x)$, then $ \pi \subseteq {\pi _x}$ for all $ x$ in a set of positive measure. With $ G$ and $ K$ as above, it follows that for each $ \pi \in \hat G$ there exists $ \sigma \in \hat K$ with $ \pi \subseteq {U^\sigma }$, the induced representation. Frobenius reciprocity type results are derived as further consequences.
