HC Deb 30 October 1919 vol 120 cc909-10W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether officers who have held acting rank receive the same gratuities as officers who have held temporary rank; and whether the responsibilities in both cases are the same?


The conditions under which acting rank counts for assessment of gratuities are given in Army Order 117 of 1919, of which I will send my hon. and gallant Friend a copy. An officer who has held temporary rank counts it for assessment of gratuities if he was drawing the pay of that rank on the termination of his war service or on 11th November, 1918, whichever date is more advantageous. The responsibilities are the same in both cases.
