HC Deb 26 February 1964 vol 690 c94W
Mr. Antony Buck

asked the Minister of Health what assistance by way of paid leave is given to employees of the National Health Service who are elected mayors or chairmen of local authorities to assist them during their year of office.

Mr. Barber

No paid leave is given but a General Whitley Council agreement provides for up to nine days unpaid leave a year and additional days, without limit, at the discretion of the employing authority.
