§ Sir G. Elliston
asked the Secretary of State for War whether the regulations now governing prisoners of war can be amended to permit the normal opportunities of promotion for medical and dental officers of the R.A.M.C. detained in enemy prisoners-of-war camps for the care of British prisoners.
§ Sir J. Grigg
Time promotion is carried out under the normal rules for all officers who are prisoners of war. They also retain their paid acting and temporary ranks while they are prisoners, but the period during which they retain acting rank does not count for conversion to temporary rank. I do not consider that special arrangements should be made for medical and dental officers.
