§ 13. Mr. SMEDLEY CROOKE
asked the Secretary of State for War if he will reconsider the advisability of issuing engagement bars to the medals won in the Great War; and whether, if expense is the difficulty, he will issue them to those entitled to them on payment of the cost?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON - EVANS
Owing to the cost involved, it has been decided not to issue clasps to the War medals; nor would it be desirable to authorise an issue of clasps confined to those persons who are able and ready to pay for them.
