asked the Secretary of State for War if he can state the length of time which elapses between the application for a Territorial efficiency decoration and the granting of such decoration.

Owing to the reduction of the qualifying period for the Territorial efficiency decoration from 20 to 12 years in September, 1949, the branch concerned received a vast number of applications and queries, and some applications have had to wait nearly 12 months before the decoration was granted. It is hoped that by March, 1951, all arrears will be cleared. Thereafter, the average length of time between the application for the decoration and its grant should be about one month.
