Abstract: Let $ G$ be a semisimple linear algebraic group over an algebraically closed field $ K$ of characteristic $ p > 3$. We have described and classified all parabolic subgroup-schemes of $ G$ (Trans. Amer. Math. Soc. (to appear)). Here we will show that $ G/P$ is a rational projective variety also for a nonreduced parabolic subgroup-scheme $ P$ of $ G$.
