asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that an officer who was recently posted to an appointment to which the war establishment of his unit specifically allots the rank of captain has been refused promotion to this rank in direct disregard of para. 1 (a) of A.C.I. 773 of 1944, because he has expressed his desire to be discharged in due course with his group, whilst volunteering to remain for some time after the group discharge date if desired; and will he have this injustice remedied.

Time has not permitted of the full investigation which I think desirable into these allegations. If any injustice should prove to have been done it will be remedied.
