Paragraph 28

           The first sentence should read

The Department of Management agrees that serious consideration could be given to the payment of the education grant entitlement on a lump-sum basis, although there are differences with home leave travel since the administrative savings that resulted from a change in the system for processing home leave travel are actually due to the willingness of staff members to take a lump-sum entitlement of 75 per cent of their entitlement.
