§ The Prime Minister
Yes, Sir. Her Majesty has approved proposals for the grant of the Africa General Service Medal for specified service in Kenya since 21st October, 1952. A short White Paper on the subject is available in the Vote Office.

Does my right hon. Friend agree that this action will be taken as a recognition of duties carried out in trying circumstances by officers and men, and that it will meet with universal approval throughout the country and in the House?
