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?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
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?
