HC Deb 31 May 1945 vol 411 c396W
Major Markham

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that there appear to be different methods of granting leave to B.L.A. personnel, especially as between corps and L. of C., and that, owing to stoppage of leave to units in England before D-Day, there are members of the B.L.A. who have not had leave for over 12 months; and what steps are being taken to remedy these anomalies.

Mr. Petherick

Conditions are not uniform everywhere, and the detailed arrangements are therefore left to the local commanders. There are bound to be anomalies in an Army serving in such widely dispersed theatres and under such varied conditions, but I very much hope that in time they can be reduced in number and severity.
