Award Of Pingat Jasa Malaysia Medal

EDM number 784 in 2004-05, proposed by Jeffrey Donaldson on 24/02/2005.

That this House notes the announcement by the Malaysian Government that it wishes to award the Pingat Jasa Malaysia Medal to all Commonwealth ex-service personnel who served in either the Emergency or the Confrontation in that country between 1957 and 1966; recalls that a number of British Army regiments, including the Royal Ulster Rifles, served in Borneo during that period together with other elements of the United Kingdom Armed Forces; further notes the decision of the Australian Government to accept the award of this medal for its ex-service personnel; and calls on the UK Government to enter into discussions with the Malaysian Government to ensure that those British ex-service personnel who qualify for the award of the Pingat Jasa Malaysia Medal should receive this just recognition of their valiant service to the Crown and the people of Malaysia.

This motion has been signed by a total of 19 MPs.
