HC Deb 08 August 1911 vol 29 c947

asked the Undersecretary of State for War whether he can. see his way to place the women viewers in the Royal Army Clothing Department on the same footing as the men viewers with regard to annual leave, with pay, etc.?

Colonel SEELY

As regards the viewers at Pimlico, leave with pay is only given to those who exercise supervision. The women referred to in the question do not exercise such supervision, but are themselves under the supervision of the men viewers. They receive the same benefits as the men viewers as regards paid public holidays, sick-pay, gratuity on discharge and medical attendance, but they are not entitled to leave with pay under the regulations.
