HC Deb 22 January 1918 vol 101 cc803-4
28. Mr. O'GRADY

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether, in the event of the death of a soldier who has not received his increased pay, his representatives will be entitled to get it?


The answer is in the affirmative.

Colonel L. WILSON

If a man who has not declared that he desires to reduce his allotment by the amount of the concession becomes a casualty, mill the separation allowance for twenty-six weeks after his death be increased by the amount of the concession?


That does not arise out of the question on the Paper

32. Colonel L. WILSON

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether it is to be understood that no alterations will be made in any grants already allocated by the Civil Liabilities Committee to officers, non-commissioned officers, and men, and thus minimise the value of the recent concessions in pay and allowances?


I hope that an announcement on this subject will shortly be made.
