HC Deb 17 February 1887 vol 310 c1775

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, in connection with the Jubilee, Her Majesty's Government will grant additional holidays to the clerks and other employés in the Civil Service?

THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)

I can hold out no prospect of the leave suggested being granted. My hon. Friend will see that in order to give it we should have to impose extra work upon those to whom the leave could not be given.
