HC Deb 18 April 1946 vol 421 cc2881-2
45. Major Tufton Beamish

asked the Prime Minister what progress has been made in consultation with Dominion Governments concerning the award of campaign stars and medals; how far these discussions have gone towards finding a solution to the anomalies which have arisen concerning these awards; and when he expects to be able to make a final announcement as to the decisions that have been reached.
