HC Deb 21 December 1944 vol 406 c1993W
Mr. De la Bère

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the Government can give an assurance in connection with the seven days' leave of the troops from the Western theatre of war that there will be no compulsion for troops to take this leave in Paris or elsewhere on the Continent in lieu of leave at home.

Sir J. Grigg

Yes, Sir. This leave scheme is designed to give men a period of leave in the United Kingdom.
