HC Deb 27 June 1856 vol 142 cc2090-1

said, he wished to ask whether the arrangements for the distribution of the Victoria Order of Valour were completed, or nearly so, and whether it would be brought into operation at an early period? Nothing, he considered, was so bad in a subject of this kind as delay. The Baltic medals and the Crimean medals had been distributed much too profusely. All who were in the Baltic or the Crimea, whether they were worthy or unworthy, had received them. With regard to the Order in question, the rules were excellent, and he trusted they would be adhered to.


said, he believed the arrangements were all but completed; and as soon as they were, the Order would be brought into operation.
