HC Deb 20 December 1945 vol 417 c1536
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?
