government response details
Their selfless contribution ensured that the UK was equipped with the deterrent we needed during the dangerous years of the Cold War.The Ministry of Defence has asked the Cabinet Office if The Committee on the Grants of Honours, Decorations and Medals (The HD Committee) would consider looking afresh at the previous information, and examine any new evidence presented by campaigners. If the Committee decides that a medal is appropriate recognition for veterans, a recommendation will be made to Her Majesty The Queen. It is envisaged that if the recommendation is supported any subsequent medal would be made available to all those who witnessed the nuclear tests. Ministry of Defence
