asked the Minister of Defence what is the amount of privilege leave the Services propose to grant to National Service men during their two years' period of whole-time service.
National Service men in the Royal Navy are granted leave under the same conditions as Regulars. National Service men in the Army and Royal Air Force who were serving on 30th September, 1950, and whose period of colour service has been extended by six months will be eligible for 14 days additional leave, with travel warrant. This will put these men on approximately the same leave basis as Regulars. The question of leave for National Service men in the Army and Royal Air Force called up on and after 1st October last is still under examination.
