§ Captain FALCON
asked the Secretary of State for War why such delay is taking place in the promotion of officers in the Special Reserve (Cavalry) to the rank of major after their pari passu officer has received similar promotion?637W
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
The system ofpari passu promotion was introduced as a war measure, and such promotions were recently suspended temporarily while the question of a reversion to peace conditions was under consideration. It has now been decided to continue the system until the legal termination of the War, and the officers concerned are being promoted accordingly.
