You are not to have any holidays this year - instead you are to " go on leave ". The Ministry of Health has sent a letter to all local authorities within the London region asking them to tell workers what they should do with their summer vacation. The letter says, " It is desirable to emphasize by publicity that this is a period of leave, not a holiday in the ordinary sense ". It goes on to say that the " leave " has been granted so that workers may have a period of recreation and recuperation. The word "leave" has been chosen to banish any feeling that time should not be taken off from work.
