HC Deb 26 February 1894 vol 21 c1046
MR. A. C. MORTON (Peterborough)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether the allowance of 61 days' leave of absence per annum to Staff and Departmental Army officers includes all leave of absence to which these officers are entitled; whether this Order is obeyed; whether regimental officers are under the same Order; and is it correct that any officers take from 90 to 100 days' absence per annum?


The 61 days include all the leave to which the officers are entitled with pay, and the Regulation is strictly enforced. Regimental officers are not under the same Order, and under special circumstances officers occasionally obtain longer leave.
