§ 54. Mr. Roebuck
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works if he will reconsider his decision to strike only 1,500 silver 2¼-inch Prince of Wales Investiture medals, in the light of the fact that more than 6,100 applications were received within a few days of the issue being announced.
§ Mr. Loughlin
No. Having announced publicly the limited strike of 2¼-inch silver Investiture medals it would be a breach of faith to increase the number. As I said on 11th March—[Vol. 779, c.245]—arrangements have now been made for a further 7,500 1¾-inch silver medals to be struck.
