HC Deb 30 January 1947 vol 432 c1115
66. Mr. Thomas Reid

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many of the N.F.S. men who behaved so gallantry during the explosions at Savernake Forest, Wiltshire, have now been decorated.

Mr. Ede

The matter is still under consideration. I hope a decision will shortly be reached.

Mr. Reid

Is it not a fact that others who behaved gallantly during these explosions have already been decorated?

Mr. Ede

In response to previous Questions I dealt with that matter, and in this case I am hopeful that a decision will be reached in not later than three weeks.
