13. Mr. HAMILTON
asked the Secretary of State for War whether the claim made as long ago as 3rd December, 1913, on behalf of C. Cooper, of Knutsford, Cheshire, for an Indian war medal, will how be settled; and, in view of the applicant's age, whether he will cable to India, if necessary, for a reply to his letter of December last?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. Tennant)
I understand that the India Office have not yet received a reply on this case from the Government of India, and that no reply is expected before the middle of next month.
Will the hon. Gentleman telegraph—this man has been awaiting a reply since early in December last?
