§ Brigadier-General CROFT
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether, having regard to the services rendered by the Territorial Forces, especially at the commencement of the War, the War Office will now consider the advisability of slightly shortening the qualifying period for the Territorial Force decoration and long service medal, in order that those who had given long service in the Territorial Forces prior to the War and have, so far, survived may feel that their valuable services in times of peace are appreciated?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
It is not considered advisable that any alteration should be made in the qualifying periods for the Territorial decoration or the Territorial Force efficiency medal to which I assume my hon. and gallant Friend refers.
