HC Deb 01 July 1919 vol 117 cc790-1W

asked the Under-Secretary of State to the Air Ministry whether the officer commanding No. 10 Group, Royal Air Force, has issued an order suspending week-end leave, contrary to the practice hitherto; and if the Air Ministry intend the Order to stand?

Major-General SEELY

Week-end leave has not been stopped. The pre-war practice of granting week-end leave from Saturday midday to Sunday night has been reintroduced. At the same time it has been found possible to restore the practice prevailing before the War of observing general holidays and the giving of extended leave so far as the exigencies of the service permit.
