§ 64. Dr. Summerskill
asked the Secretary of State for War what proportion of officers in the Women's Auxiliary Services are promoted from the ranks?
§ Mr. Stanley
Nearly 90 per cent. of the present officers of the Auxiliary Territorial Service were appointed while the Service was being formed. The remainder, with the exception of a few who served as officers in the last war, were appointed after service in the ranks, and this will continue to be the practice.
