HC Deb 05 March 1917 vol 91 c38

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland if John Butler and Margaret Butler, of Raheen, Mountrath, Queen's County, old age pensioners, applied for the weekly increase of 2s. 6d. each; and, seeing that they were only granted 2s. and 1s. 6d. respectively, will he have inquiries made into this case with a view to having the full amount paid?

Mr. BALDWIN (Lord of the Treasury)

Inquiries are being made into the matter, and I will acquaint the hon. Member with the result.
