HC Deb 02 April 1958 vol 585 c142W
48. Mr. W. Griffiths

asked the Minister of Defence whether he is aware that when compassionate leave is granted to a Service man stationed overseas, it is customary to set this against his normal leave entitlement; and whether he will reconsider this procedure to allow compassionate leave to be granted without regard to normal annual leave.

Mr. Sandys

This Question is at present being looked into.
