§ Major GLYN
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will recommend the issue of the 1914–15 Star to all officers and men of the Territorial Force who were 984W members of that force before 4th August, 1914, and who accepted the Imperial service obligation before 1st October, 1914, but who were detained in Great Britain against their will until April, 1916, for purposes of training new recruits or coast defence; and whether the number o£such officers and men is less than 8,000, including the two first-line Yeomanry brigades who alone, as units mobilised in August, 1914, have not received the Star?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
The award of this Star is confined to those who served in certain specified theatres of war prior to the 31st December, 1915, and I regret that it cannot be further extended. With regard to the last part of the question, the issue of the Star has not yet commenced.
