§ Sir K. Wood
As I have already stated, this matter is now being examined, and I will inform the House directly a decision has been reached.
§ Mr. Garro Jones
Will the right hon. Gentleman at the same time take into consideration the principles upon which this decoration is awarded instead of the decoration of the Order of the British Empire, which was recently conferred upon a non-commissioned pilot who showed great gallantry when his machine was brought down, and the decoration was also recently conferred upon a shorthand-typist in his Department?
