HC Deb 08 February 1967 vol 740 c318W
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.
