§ 89. Mr. DUFFY
asked the hon. Member for Worcestershire ([...]ewdley Division) whether he is aware that the clerks of pension sub-committees in county Galway have not received the fees due to them in respect to additional allowances to old age pensioners for the quarter ending December, 1916; what is the cause; and will the matter have his attention?
§ Mr. STANLEY BALDWIN (Lord of the Treasury)
I am informed that a cheque in payment of the amount due has already been forwarded to the clerk of the committee. The payment was authorised as soon as the accounts, which were not forwarded by the clerk until a somewhat late date, had been checked.
