§ SIR JOHN LENG (Dundee)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Homo Department, how many silver medals have been issued since His Majesty's Coronation to the heads of municipalities in the United Kingdom; and what was the cost of each medal.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOB THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. AKERS DOUGLAS, Kent, St. Augustine's)
These Medals are the personal gift of the King, and have been bestowed on such municipal officers as it has pleased His Majesty to direct. My knowledge in the matter does not go beyond the fact that I have, by His Majesty's commands, been the medium of distributing the medals to all the Mayors of the Boroughs of England and Wales.
