§ 18. Mr. GINNELL
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he will explain why James Barry, aged 82, Mullingar, father of two men now serving in the 6th Leinster Regiment, dependent on one of them, allotted by the latter last September a portion of his military pay towards subsistence, has not received any of this; and, seeing that this dependant is now in debt, destitute, and helpless, whether the arrears will now be paid to 1096 him without further delay and his allowance paid regularly in future?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. H. Baker)
I will have inquiry made into this case and let the hon. Member know the result in due course.
§ Mr. GINNELL
Will the hon. Gentleman say why he has not had inquiry made already, in pursuance of the private notice I sent him?
§ 37. Mr. RONALD McNEILL

§ 45. Mr. BENTHAM
