HC Deb 16 April 2002 vol 383 c834W
Mr. Dismore

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if she will make it her policy to include the Yeoman Warders, extraordinary bodyguard of the Sovereign, in the group eligible for award of the Queen's Golden Jubilee medal; and if she will make a statement. [48759]

Tessa Jowell

The services receiving the commemorative medal are the armed forces and Royal Fleet Auxiliary, and the "999" emergency services. Yeoman Warders of the Tower of London do not fall within these categories and are therefore ineligible for the medal.
