asked the Minister for Labour if he is aware that many insurance companies are still refusing to permit their wholetime agents to take annual holidays with pay; if he will now amend the regulations to remove any doubt or ambiguity concerning the entitlement of such agents to annual holidays; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

I would refer the Deputy to the reply to a similar question on the 5th July, 1966.

Is the Minister as disappointed as I am at the long delay?
