14. Mr. NEWDEGATE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that cases exist of the wives of soldiers on active service not having received one-third of their husband's pay, although that sum has been stopped by the wish of the husband from what he receives; and whether, on information being given to him of individual cases where this hardship exists, he will take steps to have it redressed without delay?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Harold Baker)
I am not aware of such cases. I will certainly make inquiry if it is desired, but the best and quickest remedy is to apply direct to the paymaster concerned, and I hope that the hon. Member may be willing to adopt that course.
