§ Mr. Walter Edwards
asked the Secretary of State for War if he will now make a statement upon the question of the leave granted to Army personnel when discharged under paragraph 390 (xvii)a, K.R., 1940, and paragraph 390 (xxi)b, K.R., 1940.
Sir J. Griģģ
As I said in my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Abertillery (Mr. Daggar) on 29th May other ranks whose terminal leave on discharge begins on or after 8th May will in general receive 56 days' leave on full pay unless 1447 they are discharged on voluntary termination of full pay service, or to enter the Navy or the Air Force, or on appointment to a commission or for misconduct. This also applies to officers.
