HC Deb 11 July 1985 vol 82 c537W
Mr. Holt

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he has any plans to review the annual award to holders of, or widows of holders of, the Victoria Cross and George Cross; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Lee

We have no plans at present to review the annuity associated with the Victoria Cross.

The George Cross is, of course, primarily intended for civilians, and questions relating to its associated pension are a matter for my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister.
