§ 65. Lieutenant Skeffington-Lodge
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether industrial employees in Government establishments will receive a paid holiday on Christmas Eve.
§ Mr. Glenvil Hall
Yes, Sir. Arrangements have been made for a special additional paid holiday to be granted this year to all Government industrial employees on 24th December or New Year's Eve, in the case of staffs employed in Scotland.
§ Lieutenant Skeffington-Lodge
In expressing grateful thanks to the hon. Gentleman for that reply, may I ask him whether he is aware that the answer he has given will give the greatest satisfaction to many thousand industrial employees throughout the country, who will regard it as a very pleasant Christmas Box?
