HC Deb 17 December 1945 vol 417 c1078W
Mr. Shurmer

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty why are pensioners on discharge leave not given the extra 14 days' leave which in peacetime is always given to a man on discharge to pension.

Mr. Alexander

Pensioners in peacetime were given 14 days' leave on discharge to enable them to seek employment. Under the Release Scheme 56 days' leave is granted to temporary personnel on discharge, and the leave given to pensioners has been extended to the same amount.
