HC Deb 20 December 1967 vol 756 c454W
Mr. Anderson

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Affairs what arrangements he has made for the award of the General Service Medal (Army and Royal Air Force) with a clasp, Brunei, and the General Service Medal, 1962, with a clasp, Borneo, to members of the North Borneo and Sarawak police forces.

Mr. George Thomas:

The Command Papers relevant to these Medals have been amended to render eligible for them those persons in the North Borneo and Sarawak Police Forces who fulfilled certain conditions and who had taken part in operations in the territories concerned prior to 16th September, 1963, the date of the establishment of Malaysia. The cost of the Medals will be in the region of £11,000 and the House will be asked to approve a supplementary estimate in due course.
