§ Mr. A. ALLEN
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the concession which has been made 1487W whereby non-commissioned officers and men of the Territorial Force who were embodied under Army Order 281 of 1914, and who either before or after the date of embodiment signed an agreement to serve outside the United Kingdom, are to be allowed to count embodied service in the ranks twofold as qualifying service for the award of the Territorial Force efficiency medal, he can see his way clear to recommend a similar concession with regard to the period of service necessary to qualify a Territorial officer for the award of the Territorial Decoration?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
I would refer my hon. Friend to the oral reply which I gave to-day to a similar question by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Knutsford.
