HC Deb 05 July 1978 vol 953 c176W
Sir Bernard Braine

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps he is taking to overcome the delay in issuing long service medals to police officers, some of whom at the present rate of issue will have retired before they receive their medals.

Dr. Summerskill

Every effort will be made to clear as soon as possible the backlog in the distribution of medals. Extra staff have been provided for this purpose.
