§ Bob Russell
To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport (i) if she will make it her policy that The Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal should be awarded to serving members of the Prison Service; 
(2) if she will list the categories of people who will be entitled to be awarded the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal; 
(3) what plans she has to extend the categories of those who will be entitled to receive the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal; and if she will make a statement. 
§ Tessa Jowell
The medal is being issued to serving members of the armed forces and Royal Fleet Auxiliary and to the '999' emergency services. Eligibility is restricted to those who completed a minimum of five years' reckonable service on 6 February 2002—the 50th anniversary of the Queen's Accession. The detailed criteria for distribution are being worked out. The Prison Service is not an emergency service and therefore does not come within the criteria for the issue of the medal.
