§ Mr. Braine
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether any decision has yet been made in respect of the claim submitted by industrial civil servants for twelve days' annual leave.
§ Mr. Gaitskell
No, not yet. At a recent meeting of the Joint Co-ordinating Committee the Official Side explained that they had proposed to lay the matter before my predecessor in person as the trade union side had expressly requested. The claim has now been put to me and I am at present seeking some further information. As soon as I have this I will consider the claim and reach a decision.
