Bletchley Park: Medals

Volume 501: debated on Thursday 26 November 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when those who worked on code-breaking at Bletchley Park will receive their service medals. (301814)

All eligible veterans who have submitted an application for the Bletchley Park Commemorative Badge have been sent their badge and certificate. This amounts to over 2,000 applications up to and including 24 November 2009.

I attended a special celebration ceremony at Bletchley Park on 9 October 2009 to pay tribute to the vital work these veterans carried out during the Second World War. The Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) will continue to send out badges and certificates to eligible veterans on receipt of applications.
