British military to be allowed reduced week in pilot

Members of all three services gathered at Kandahar Air base to pay their respects during a service of Remembrance in November 2014.

British military personnel will be allowed to temporarily work a reduced three-day week and opt out of frontline duties to spend more time with their families as part of a pilot scheme being tested by the Ministry of Defence.

The Flexible Duties Trial document will also reportedly see soldiers’ tax-free bonuses of up to £50 per day cut if they choose to reduce their hours.

It is reported that requests to reduce hours will be considered on a case by case basis by a commanding officer and that those already deployed or committed to a campaign are likely to be refused permission to reduce their hours.
