asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether consideration can be given, with a view to revision, to permit naval ratings to reckon war service towards the award of the naval long service and good conduct medal when not rendered under an engagement to complete time for pension?

Continuous service men who are detained under Royal Proclamation after their engagement has expired and who do not re-engage for pension are allowed to count the time towards the award of the long service and good conduct medal. For other men it is a condition of the award of the active service, long service and good conduct medal that they shall have re-engaged to complete time for pension.
