§ MR. YOUNGER (Ayr Burghs)
To ask the Secretary of State for War whether Volunteers who may complete the qualifying period of service for the Volunteers decoration in the Territorial Army will receive that decoration; whether cases of members of disbanded regiments or of Volunteers who feel they cannot join the Territorial Army will receive consideration though the qualifying period has not been completed; and whether service in any rank will count.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) Service in the Volunteers will reckon towards the grant of the decoration to officers. The cases of those who are unable to join the Territorial Force will receive full consideration. The details are not yet finally settled.
