HC Deb 25 July 1938 vol 338 c2741W
Mr. Gallacher

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that a large number of Territorials employed in the works department of the Crombie depot are ranked as casuals and therefore get no pay during the holiday week, 1st to 6th August, and also no payment during the period of their Territorial camp, from 28th August to 11th September, thus being without pay for three weeks between the beginning of August and September; and whether he will cause sympathetic consideration to be given to the claims of these men in this respect?

Mr. Shakespeare

I have ascertained that there are only two Territorials to whom this question can refer and although neither of these men is eligible for leave with pay during the closed week both will be eligible for leave with pay if they attend their annual Territorial camp from 28th August to 11th September.
