HC Deb 15 August 1907 vol 180 cc1599-600
MR. WILES (Islington, S.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, considering that regulations now in force in His Majesty's prisons prevent members of the staff' attending the annual conference of the Ex-Naval and Military Civil Servants Association, he can see his way to grant prison officials similar facilities as are given in other Goverment Departments.


I have given instructions that members of this Association who are in the prison service should be allowed, subject to the needs of the Service, special leave, without pay, to attend the annual conference of the Association, and that they may also, subject to the same condition, use part of their annual leave for this purpose.
