§ MR. RANKIN
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether Volunteers who have served for 20 years, part of their time as non-commissioned officers, 477 but who by their own request have reverted to the ranks, will be eligible to receive the decoration about to be issued to non-commissioned officers?
§ MR. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN
I can only refer the hon. Member to the statement I have already made, that the details of the conditions under which the decoration will be granted to non-commissioned officers are not yet settled.
