§ 56. Mr. Murray
asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he will consult with Commonwealth Governments with a view to advising the abolition of distinctions between awards of gallantry for officers and other ranks in Her Majesty's forces.
§ Mr. Reynolds
Consultation with Commonwealth Governments is not a matter for me but for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs. I am still considering the general issues arising from the abolition of distinctions between awards for officers and other ranks.
