§ SIR CHARLES W. CAYZER (Barrow-in-Furness)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War if it is the case that some of the European and Native troops have not yet received their medals for the Chitral Campaign which took place three years ago; and, if not, what is the reason of the delay in issuing them; and, whether a special medal will be issued to the troops which took part in the recent campaigns on the North-West Frontier in place of the clasp to the medal granted to those troops who were engaged in the former Frontier wars?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Lord G. HAMILTON, Middlesex, Ealing)
My hon. Friend will allow me to reply to this Question. The medals for the Chitral Campaign were issued in the first half of last year. If my hon. Friend will inform me of any cases in which the medals have not yet been received, I will cause inquiry to be made as to the delay. Nothing, as yet, has been decided as to the issue of a medal for the recent campaigns in India.
