I thank my right hon. Friend for the first part of his Answer, but is it not a fact that all three of these officers are in a salary scale which allows them to be designated and the reason given for their non-designation is the failure of the Northern Rhodesian Government to apply to the Secretary of State on their promotion? This was a failure of a Government, and it ought not to result in hardship to the officers concerned.
