HC Deb 17 March 1947 vol 435 cc32-3W
Mr. J. Morrison

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what special leave concessions will be authorised this year to the Civil Service to encourage civil servants to attend the voluntary agriculture camps in the south-west region, as camps are opening in this region three weeks later than in 1946.

Mr. Glenvil Hall

It is proposed to allow the same concessions as last year, i.e. up to six days special leave with pay on certain conditions. The period during which the concessions will apply in England and Wales, namely up to 31st May and after 13th September, is, I understand, generally acceptable to the various interests concerned. I do not think the later opening of the camps in the South-West Region justifies an alteration in the concessions.
