HC Deb 26 October 1943 vol 393 cc18-9
23. Mr. Hutchinson

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will amend the regulations governing the award of the Territorial Decoration so that commissioned service in the R.A.F.V.R. in a unit of the A.T.C. may count for the award of this decoration?

Sir J. Grigg

I am not sure that I understand what are the grounds on which this change is advocated. Perhaps my hon. and learned Friend will write to me saying exactly what he has in mind, and I will look into the matter.

Mr. Hutchinson

Is not the service that these officers give substantially identical with that given by Territorial officers in peace-time, and should not there be some modest recognition of it?
