HC Deb 20 June 1938 vol 337 c724W
Sir A. Wilson

asked the Secretary of State for War how many persons are in receipt of increased pensions as holders of the distinguished conduct medal; and how many awards have been made since 1st June, 1920 and 1930, respectively?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

No special record is kept of these awards which are merged in the pensions of the men concerned. To furnish the required information would involve the examination of at least 100,000 records, an expenditure of time and labour which I regret I am unwilling to impose on my Department.
