HC Deb 06 March 1928 vol 161 c267W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether the Army Council has yet arrived at any decision with regard to clasps and medals awarded for service during the late War; and, if not, whether the Army Council will, in the interests of public economy, consider the possibility of awarding clasps for the various battle fronts rather than for individual battles?

Lieut.-Colonel GUINNESS

The proposal to issue clasps raises difficult questions of financial and administrative importance, and I regret that I am not yet in a position to announce a final decision. I will carefully consider the suggestion of my hon. Friend.
