§ 54. Mr. HORE-BELISHA
asked the Prime Minister whether he will inquire into the position of the industrial employés of His Majesty's Government, who only get four public bank holidays in a year; and whether he will consider the possibility of giving these employés a reasonable period of annual holiday on full pay for the sake of their health and the efficiency of the Government service?
§ Mr. McNEILL
The matter has already received careful consideration, but it has not been found possible to adopt the proposal contained in the question.
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that this is a very small matter compared with the grant of £200,000 which it was proposed to make to the Civil Service for a Sports Ground?
