§ 24. Mr. BUTCHER
asked the Prime Minister whether effect has yet been given to the announcements recently made as to the promotion of officers to substantive or temporary rank; and, if not, whether steps for this purpose will be taken without delay?
§ Mr. TENNANT
Arrangements are nearly complete for effect being given to the announcement which I made in the Debate of 22nd April.
§ Mr. BUTCHER
What will be the position of officers who are killed in action, and who are entitled to this substantive or temporary rank, and who have not yet received it?
