§ Lord Mason of Barnsley
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What consideration they have given to the presentation of the National Service Medal to those Bevin Boys who were conscripted to serve in the coal mines during the 1939–45 war. [HL2989]
§ Lord Sainsbury of Turville
A public memorial to all those who served during the 1939–1945 war on the Home Front, including those who were conscripted to serve in the coal mines, was unveiled by the Queen in a service of commemoration at Coventry Cathedral on 3 March 2000.
The National Service Medal is not an official award. It is produced for sale by a commercial company.
