Sir J. D. REES
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that a number of senior officers of the Navy are wearing Allied war medal ribbons and victory medal ribbons, for wearing which up to date authority has not been given; and when he proposes to give the necessary authority, in view of the fact that the Army Council has long since authorised the wearing of the like ribbons by Army officers?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
The conditions under which these ribbons should be worn in the case of the Royal Navy have not yet been finally settled. It is hoped, however, to make an announcement on the subject shortly.
