HC Deb 12 June 1945 vol 411 cc1446-7
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 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.
