HC Deb 19 July 1915 vol 73 c1155

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, in view of the fact that the chargemen in His Majesty's dockyards have been working at high pressure for the last twelve months, he can see his way to allow them to take their nine days' leave as opportunity occurs during the next two months?


The dockyard officers will deal with applications for leave with every consideration, subject to the requirements of the Service, but it is not proposed to give them precise directions as to the manner in which the charge-men shall be permitted to take the annual leave which was conceded to them in 1912. General instructions on the subject have been issued.
