HC Deb 07 March 1929 vol 226 cc575-6W

asked the Secretary of State for War the number of industrial employés in the service of the War Department; and the number of such employés who are entitled to at least one week's holiday with pay each year?


The number of persons at War Department establishments at home who are classified as industrials is approximately 24,000. Such employés, in general, receive pay on certain public holidays, the number of which varies at different establishments. As a body they do not receive annual leave with pay, as distinct from those holidays, but there are approximately 1,000 of them of somewhat special grades to whom six or more days annual leave with pay is at present granted.
