HC Deb 14 December 1900 vol 88 c825
MR. LOUIS SINCLAIR (Essex, Romford)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he will cause an inquiry to be made in the case of the widow of Private J. Hasler, of 2nd Somerset Light Infantry, who died of enteric fever at Kimberley 9th November (Mrs. Hasler wrote on 16th November to the commanding officer of the said regiment asking for the effects and deferred pay of the said J. Hasler, but no reply has been vouchsafed to her); and whether the Secretary of State for War will expedite matters so that Mrs. Hasler and her two children are not compelled to go to the workhouse.

* MR. J. POWELL-WILLIAMS (Birmingham, S.)

I have no information as to the case, but will be very glad to make inquiry into it.
