An authorized certifying officer of the Federal Home Loan Bank Board, requested an advance decision regarding an employee's claim for travel expenses or per diem relating to his return from his temporary duty station to his official duty station in order to take a Veterans Administration physical examination. There is no authority to pay for such travel since the employee was not incapacitated while serving on temporary duty or while returning to his official station, and since the examination was not primarily for the benefit of the government. The employee was entitled to use annual or sick leave or leave without pay for the examination; administrative leave will not be used.
