HC Deb 05 March 1919 vol 113 c419W

asked the Secretary to the Admiralty if it is a fact that all men engaged in mine-sweeping are to get ten days' leave as from the 31st March; and if, in view of the fact that in many cases all those days would be exhausted in travelling home and back, he will grant an additional extension to men from the Highlands and Islands so as to give them at least a few days with their families?


My hon. Friend will be glad to know that officers and men from distant bases will receive special consideration to cover their additional length of journeys.
