HC Deb 14 March 1945 vol 409 c215
22. Mr. Price

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that men returning from overseas get 21 days' leave if they have been in the Service for only a few days less than four years, while those who have served for four years or more get 28 days; that this causes dissatisfaction; and whether he will arrange a system which is less rigid.

Commander Brabner

The length of disembarkation leave for Royal Air Force personnel depends upon the period of continuous service abroad. Men who have served abroad for four years or more receive 28 days' leave. Those who have served for two years or more but less than four years receive 21 days. There are bound to be border-line cases but I am not aware that the rules have given rise to any general dissatisfaction and I see no reason for altering them.
