§ 75. Sir BERTRAM FALLE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he is aware that Private Pearce, 15th Battalion Hants Regiment, supported his mother to the extent of at least 18s. per week previous to the War, but that Mrs. Pearce is now refused dependants' allowance because Private Pearce failed, from no fault of his own, to make a declaration within, one month of enlistment; and if he will inquire into the case and endeavour to put matters on a more equitable footing?
§ Mr. FORSTER
Inquiry is being made, and my hon. Friend will be informed of the result in due course.
