§ 21. Mr. Medland
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether the leave granted for Overseas Service to war service personnel at the rate of one day's leave for each month of Service Overseas applies to Regular Servicemen; and, if so, when are they to be given this leave.
§ Mr. Strachey
Overseas Service leave was introduced as part of the release scheme for non-Regulars but has been extended to Regulars whose service ends while the release scheme is in operation. The Service Departments are now considering the introduction of special "end of the war" leave for Regulars and instructions will shortly be promulgated.
