HC Deb 28 July 1904 vol 138 c1479
MR. ERNEST GRAY (West Ham, N.)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether the Imperial Service medal is recommended on behalf of Civil servants in the lower grades who, having given long and faithful service, still retain their appointments; or whether it is reserved for those who have completed their service.


By the statutes of the Order, it is on retirement that this honour is given.
