HC Deb 13 November 1945 vol 415 c2054W
Lieut.-Colonel Price-White

asked the Secretary of State for War what are the present arrangements with regard to leave for officers and men of the British Army now serving in Austria.

Mr. Lawson

Twenty-eight days' leave to the United Kingdom for all troops with over 18 months' service overseas who are not due for repatriation within a few months. It is hoped to clear all entitlement on this basis by the end of the year. Twenty-eight days' local leave annually, in two periods of 14 days, one of which is forfeited when leave to the United Kingdom is granted. The usual disembarkation leave is granted to personnel repatriated to the United Kingdom.
