A necessary and sufficient condition for a pair of subspaces to be the in and out scattering subspaces for a simple scattering system is obtained. It involves the existence of certain representations of the Galilean presymmetry group on these subspaces. The physical interpretation is that, in scattering, particles remain as particles even in the presence of the interaction.
