HC Deb 11 June 1918 vol 106 c2016
16. Colonel FABER

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether all officers who have escaped from Germany have recovered their original place in the Army List; and, if not, how many are awaiting promotion, and why?


The conditions under which officers shall be promoted on ceasing to be prisoners of war is at present under consideration. There are several cases awaiting disposal, and I hope a decision will shortly be reached.

Brigadier-General McCALMONT

Will my right hon. Friend see that the cases of officers interned in Switzerland, which are blocking the promotion of other officers in this country, receive consideration?


Most certainly.
