HC Deb 03 December 1936 vol 318 cc1455-6W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he could give the approximate number of employés, respectively, who are paid for bank holidays and who are not paid?


The approximate number of War Department civilian employés at Home stations, including the War Office, on 1st April, 1936, was:

Non-industrial 10,880
Industrial 30,600
The former are paid for all bank holidays. The latter, with the exception of a small number of casual employés with insufficient service to render them eligible, are allowed, besides their week's annual leave, five public holidays with pay a year, of which, under present arrangements, two are bank holidays.
