World War II: Medals

Volume 481: debated on Monday 27 October 2008

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform how many people in (a) Jarrow constituency, (b) South Tyneside, (c) the North East and (d) England were awarded a Bevin Boys badge in each year since the inception of the award. (224687)

I have been asked to reply.

Applications for the Bevin Boys Veterans badge are processed on behalf of DECC by the MOD's Service Personnel and Veterans Agency (SPVA). They inform me that as at 6 October 2008 a total 4,541 badges have been issued. Of these, two applicants have included the word Jarrow in their address and have received a Bevin Boys Veterans badge.

Figures for the remaining areas—South Tyneside, the north-east and England—can be provided only at disproportionate costs.
