§ Sir HARRY SAMUEL
asked whether honorary rank, under Paragraph 229 of the King's Regulations, confers all the rights and advantages of substantive rank as regards precedence, and is only limited by not entitling the holder to military command?
§ Mr. HALDANE
If the hon. Member will kindly read the paragraph he will find that it states that an officer holding honorary rank is entitled to precedence attached to the corresponding rank of combatant officer, and that such rank will not entitle the holder of it to the presidency of courts-martial or to military command of any kind except over such officers and men as may be specially placed under his command.
