HC Deb 08 July 1943 vol 390 cc2281-2W
Mr. Craven-Ellis

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that chain and other stores are selling war ribbons indiscriminately; and what steps does he propose to take to safeguard the interests of the members of the Fighting Services?

Mr. A. Henderson

Any unauthorised person who wears any medal ribbon, supplied or authorised by the Army Council, is liable, under Section 156A of the Army Act, to a fine not exceeding £20 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding three months. It is not considered that any further measure is necessary.
