To ask His Majesty's Government whether there has been any change to the inclusion of the Merchant Navy Meritorious Service medal with the ambulance service, fire service and police meritorious service medals in order of wear; if so, why this change was made; and whether the Princess Royal was informed of this change.

Government has not made any changes to the status of the Order of Wear since it was instituted as a State Award in 2015. Any changes to the Order of Wear, which is set in the Royal Warrant, would have to be agreed and implemented by the Central Chancery of the Orders of Knighthood.
