HC Deb 04 March 1947 vol 434 cc41-2W
85. Brigadier Low

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will consider new regulations allowing those who have been awarded a mention in despatches, at times other than during the course of 1914–18 war and the recent war, to wear the oakleaf or similar emblem on the appropriate General Service medal.

Mr. Bellenger

I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply which my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister gave to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for East Hull (Commander Pursey) on 10th February. The matter is dealt with in more detail in paragraph 11 of the White Paper, Cmd. 7035.
