Paragraph (d), section 8, Chapter VI, Instructions to Diplomatic Officers, and paragraph (d), section 467 of the Consular Regulations of 1896, are hereby amended to read as follows:
(d) Leave without compensation. If consistent with the public interest, leave of absence for good reason may be granted without compensation for a longer time than that stipulated in these regulations for leave of absence with pay; and in any case in which leave of absence in one calendar year is to be extended to cover continuously all or a portion of the leave for the ensuing year, the absence in the first year may be supplemented in the discretion of the Secretary of State by leave without salary in sufficient amount to cover the absence to the end of that calendar year, in order that the leave with pay in the following year may be available.
