HC Deb 18 February 1920 vol 125 c932W

asked the Secretary of State for War how many firms are employed in the production of war medals; what is the average weekly output; and how long it will take to complete the production and issue of all the medals required?


At present all War medals are being produced at Woolwich Arsenal. The average weekly output is now 90,000, but it is hoped to increase this to 120,000. The production will be complete by about August, 1921. I may add that the responsibility for issue rests with the War Office.
