HC Deb 02 April 1903 vol 120 cc907-8
MR. YERBURGH (Chester)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the officers and men of the Tientsin Volunteer Corps, who served at and about Tientsin during the months of June and July, 1900, have notified His Britannic Majesty's Consul at Tientsin that they decline to accept the medal China, 1900, now offered to them because the bar for the relief of Peking has been refused to them; and whether, in view of the services rendered by these Volunteers, he will authorise the grant to this corps of the relief of Peking bar with the Chinese medal.


Will the hon. Member kindly refer to my right hon. friend's reply to a Question put by the hon. Member for South Aberdeen on the 27th ultimo. He will find the bar has been granted.
