71. Sir F. HALL
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether any steps have been taken to provide a special decoration for those who joined the Regular Army or the Territorial Force after the outbreak of hostilities and before the 1st January, 1915; and, if not, whether it is the intention of the Government to provide these men with any special distinction?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
This point will be borne in mind in considering the grant of medals for the present War, but I can make no promise in regard to the matter.
