HC Deb 18 April 1940 vol 359 c1140W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, as a result of the recommendations which have been made by the appropriate section of the general headquarters, British Expeditionary Force, it has now been decided to grant war substantive rank to all officers who were offered, in writing, and accepted such rank before taking up particular appointments and commands?

Sir E. Grigg

This question is still under consideration.
