HC Deb 20 January 1942 vol 377 c189
30. Mr. Wakefield

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he has any statement to make about the granting of disembarkation leave after service overseas?

Sir E. Grigg

The normal period of disembarkation leave on arrival in the United Kingdom has recently been increased from seven to 14 days. In certain cases, where recuperative leave is required owing to the climatic conditions at the overseas station concerned, the period is 28 days.
