§ Dr. Roger Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if a member of the Territorial Army, who is employed as an ambulance driver by an area health authority, is entitled to the 12 statutory weekend leaves from employment to allow him to meet the training requirements of the Territorial Army.
§ Mr. Nicholas Edwards
There is no statutory entitlement for time off work for Territorial Army training. Leave arrangements for such training for NHS staff are governed by the agreements of the General Whitley Council for the Health Services. I am sending a note about the relevant provisions to the hon. Member.
