The Bishop of St Albans received the following written answer on 12th July 2022:
The Lord Bishop of St Albans asked Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have, if any, to include active members of the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry with five years of service to the list of groups awarded the commemorative Platinum Jubilee Medal.
Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay (Con): Individual Government Departments, the devolved administrations and the Crown Dependencies were responsible for applying the criteria and making eligibility decisions regarding the award of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Medal to their staff and other organisations that fall under their sponsorship. The criteria are in line with those for the Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2012.
To qualify for the Medal, recipients must be in an eligible public sector role in a frontline emergency service accessed via a call to the 999 emergency telephone number or equivalent. This does not include members of the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry, but that in no way diminishes our appreciation for the vital work they do.
