§ 100. Mr. George Jeger
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what arrangements are made for home leave for men serving in the British Army of the Rhine; what free transport is provided; and whether there has been any alteration in the arrangements during the past two years.
§ Mr. Boyden
Free transport is provided for married unaccompanied men to take home leave three times a year and single men once a year. Single men may make a second journey at reduced rates of fare on trooping charter flights. Families may travel home free once every three years.
Before April, 1966, single men were allowed free travel twice a year.
