HC Deb 19 February 1919 vol 112 c924
26. Colonel ROUNDELL

asked the Secretary for War whether he is aware that the present Regulation by which warrant officers and non-commissioned officers may extend their service for twelve months if they are willing to revert to their substantive from their acting rank is having the effect of causing many of the best of these men to leave the Army for civil employment; and whether he will consider allowing such men, if recommended by their commanding officer, to extend their service without forfeiting the acting rank held by them for at least twelve months previously?

Captain GUEST

Instructions have already been issued giving effect to the proposal contained in the second part of my hon. and gallant Friend's question.
