HC Deb 10 December 1942 vol 385 c1711
78. Major Milner

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the arrangements for the retention by officers of temporary rank have yet come into operation and from what date; and whether general instructions have been, or will be given, ensuring the retention of such rank in the case of officers who have proceeded over seas since 10th November?

Mr. A. Henderson

Instructions bringing the new arrangements into operation will be issued in a few days. They will ensure that an officer who proceeded overseas on or after 7th November will retain his temporary rank or have it regranted to him.

Major Milner

Is my hon. and learned Friend aware that his answer will give great satisfaction to those concerned?
