HC Deb 27 November 1908 vol 197 c937

To ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether a regulation or order has recently been issued in British East Africa by the Colonial Office limiting the period of illness on the sick list for officials to ten days at one time, or twenty-eight days in the year, after which such officials are to be placed on half-pay, and if such order has been incorporated in the provincial gazettes throughout British East Africa.

(Answered by Colonel Seely.) Such a regulation was recently issued, but the Secretary of State has approved of its withdrawal, and in future a maximum of forty-five days sick leave per annum will be allowed.
