HC Deb 11 December 1963 vol 686 cc91-2W
Sir Knox Cunningham

asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty whether, having regard to the fact that in certain circumstances personnel of the Army and Royal Air Force are issued with free leave warrants to travel by air, he will consider issuing such free warrants in similar circumstances to officers and other ranks of the Royal Navy; and whether he will issue such warrants to those who desire to fly on leave to Northern Ireland.

Mr. Hay

The Royal Navy follows the inter-Service rules for free leave travel. These allow, exceptionally, for air travel between the Hebrides and the mainland of Scotland, but not for travel to Northern Ireland. No naval personnel have been involved in travel from the Hebrides this year.
