§ 22. Viscount CURZON
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether he is aware that an award of the Naval General Service Medal with clasps for Iraq, 1919–20, and North-West Persia, 1919–20, has been approved for the Naval personnel engaged in the operations; whether he can state if it is intended to issue the clasps; and, if so, whether it is intended to do so before awarding the clasps authorised for the late War?
§ Mr. AMMON
The answer is in the affirmative. The Naval General Service Medal with clasps, "Iraq, 1919–1920" and "North-West Persia, 1919–1920" has been approved for the Naval personnel engaged in the operations for which the General Service Medal with clasps is being issued to the Army. The number entitled is only about 100, and the awards can be made without difficulty.
§ Viscount CURZON
Are we to understand that clasps are being awarded for operations subsequent to the great War, but not for the great War itself?
§ Mr. J. JONES
Will any medals be issued to Members of Parliament who are convicted in connection with motor driving?
