HC Deb 02 April 1919 vol 114 c1220W
Major NALL

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that his officers are counting the day on which a soldier is demobilised as one of the twenty-eight days to which he is entitled as furlough; whether he is aware that men are frequently demobilised late in the day; and whether he will issue instructions that only days which are free from military duty or attendance shall be counted as part of the demobilisation furlough?


The practice in the Post Office is to count the date shown on the protection certificate as the first of the twenty-eight days' demobilisation furlough. I am consulting the War Office as to the continuance of this practice.
