HC Deb 23 June 1937 vol 325 c1180
28. Mr. Ralph Beaumont

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that, whereas hired men in the Royal dockyards who are members of the Territory Army receive one week's pay during their period of training, casual labourers receive no such pay; and whether, in the interests of recruiting for the Territorial Army, he will put the casual labourer on the same basis as the hired man?

Mr. Cooper

My hon. Friend will be glad to learn that instructions are now being issued which will allow both hired and casual workpeople who have at least six months' service and are members of the Territorial Army to obtain 12 days' leave with pay to enable them to attend annual training in camp for a fortnight.

Mr. J. J. Davidson

Is it the intention of the Department to dispense with the services on permanent leave of Admiralty spies in the workshops?
