Reconsideration was requested of a decision which held that employees whose annual leave was interrupted to perform temporary duty at another location and who returned to the place where they were on leave were entitled to reimbursement of travel expenses attributable to the temporary duty but not to the cost of returning to headquarters from the leave point. An official's statement that employees were requested, before their departure on annual leave, to interrupt their leave to perform official duties did not change the conclusion of the prior decision since the controlling reasons for the trips were personal rather than official.
