Alert me about debates like this
asked the Prime Minister whether approval has been given for the issue of a General Service Medal for service in operations on the River Yangtse earlier this year.
Yes, Sir. His Majesty has approved proposals for the grant of the Naval General Service Medal for specified service on the River Yangtse between 20th April and 31st July, 1949. A short White Paper on the subject is available in the Vote Office.
While I appreciate what the Prime Minister has said, might I ask him to consider at the same time a suitable award to the airmen who flew on the Berlin air lift?
Perhaps the hon. and gallant Member will put a question down on that matter.
