HC Deb 11 February 1947 vol 433 c39W
Mr. G. Wallace

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if civil servants already appointed as justices of the peace will be allowed one day's leave every fortnight for the purpose of fulfilling their obligations to the Bench.

Mr. Glenvil Hall

A hard and fast line would not be desirable, and the decision in individual cases must rest with the head of the Department concerned. While reasonable facilities are allowed, the officer's official work must have first claim.
