asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is now in a position to state the result of the consideration which has been given to the recommendation made by the appropriate section of general headquarters, British Expeditionary Force, to grant war substantive rank to all officers who were offered, in writing, and accepted such rank, before taking up particular appointments and commands?
