HC Deb 05 December 1950 vol 482 c36W
79. Mr. Gilzean

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will discontinue his Department's practice of deducting lying time from the pay of employees, especially in the case of established workers who are not likely to leave their employment without due notice.

Mr. Strachey

The arrangements for the application of lying time to the pay of War Department employees are now being reviewed in consultation with the employees' representatives.
