§ Brigadier-General Sir HILL CHILD
asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the injustice inflicted on many officers by the exclusion of temporary rank for the assessment of war gratuities; and if he will consider the desirability of having the Army Order which deals with this question amended so as to place temporary rank on the same footing as acting rank for the assessment of gratuities?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
Temporary rank is not excluded from the assessment of war gratuity. The gratuity is based on it, if it is held on demobilisation or on 11th November, 1918. The question is, however, under consideration.
