§ Lieut.-Colonel Thornton-Kemsley
asked the Prime Minister whether he will now arrange for the issue of medal ribbons to 725W men and women who have served continuously in the British Forces from the early days of the war, or who, having been in one or other of the Services from the qualifying date, have been discharged since on medical grounds?
