§ MR. J. P. FARRELL
I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the War Office, whether, in the case of a deceased soldier for whose assets next of kin are advertised, these assets can be handed over to a person taking out letters of administration in the ordinary way.
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE WAR OFFICE (Lord STANLEY,) Lancashire, Westhoughton
Yes, Sir. On production of letters of administration to the War Office, the effects of a deceased soldier are in the ordinary course issued to the grantee whether the amount has been advertised or not.
