§ Viscountess ASTOR
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty what is the cause of the delay in issuing 1914–15 stars; and whether there is any prospect of speeding up the distribution of these awards?
§ Mr. AMERY
The issue of the 1914–15 star to ex-naval officers and men has been in progress since November last, and announcements inviting applications have been made from time to time in the Press. This course was necessary, as the present addresses are not in most cases available. Applications are dealt with promptly on receipt at the Admiralty.
