HC Deb 16 October 1918 vol 110 c98
17 and 18. Mr. HOGGE

asked the Prime Minister (1) whether he is now prepared to reduce the age at which the parents of apprentices can receive the flat rate of 5s. a week separation allowance; and (2) whether, in view of the representations he has received, he is prepared to increase the allowances to wives and children of serving men?


I would refer the hon. Member to my statement yesterday in connection with the Business of the House. I hope that the decision of the Government on this subject may be circulated with the OFFICIAL REPORT to-night, but it will be circulated at latest to-morrow.
