§ MR. DONAL SULLIVAN (Westmeath, S.)
asked the Secretary of State for War, Why the officers and men who took part in the Zhob Valley Expedition of 1884 under Sir O. V. Tanner received neither medal, batta, nor recog- 587 nition of any kind, though the campaign was successful in every respect?
§ THE UNDEE SEOEETAEY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Sir JOHN GORST) (Chatham)
(who replied) said: Similar Questions were asked on May 4, 1885, and March 16, 1886. On each occasion it was stated that the services of the troops who took part in the Zhob Valley Expedition were recognized by the approbation of the Government of India and of the Secretary of State in Council. No further recognition is by the Secretary of State deemed expedient.
