§ Mr. Heffer
asked the Secretary of State for Defence, whether he will take steps to provide that persons holding the Meritorious Service Medal, who had not received the annuity before the fixed date, may now receive the £10.
§ Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu
The whole question of the award of the Meritorious Service Medal, and/or the annuity, for the three Services is under consideration by a working party. I cannot say what the outcome will be.
