HC Deb 27 November 1945 vol 416 c1244W
Major Boyd-Carpenter

asked the Secretary of State for War whether it is his intention that officers holding acting or temporary rank whose release from the Service is deferred beyond their normal release group, shall be guaranteed retention of that acting or temporary rank for the period of their deferment.

Mr. Lawson

No, Sir. These officers must be dealt with under the normal promotion rules.
