§ Mr. Tom Arnold
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what assessment he has made of the likely level of requests 168W for special leave by civil servants who are also elected councillors serving on police authorities or residuary bodies, following the abolition of the metropolitan counties; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Brooke
None. It is a matter for individual employing Departments. The rules covering special leave for voluntary public service are laid down in paragraphs 870–873 of the "Civil Service Pay and Conditions of Service Code", a copy of which is in the House of Commons Library.
