§ COLONEL LOCKWOOD (Essex, Epping)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether he will consider, before the conclusion of hostilities, the advisability of inviting competition for the design of a South African war medal previously to any such medal being issued to the country.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
Such a competition would have involved much delay. Designs have, in fact, been prepared and submitted to Her Majesty.
