HC Deb 08 July 1919 vol 117 cc1579-80

asked the Secretary of State for War whether Private A. Jones, No. 59217, of the 1st Northants Regiment, was believed to be missing and then presumed dead; that pension papers have been sent to the aged parents to duly sign, but have been returned blank as the son is still living and a member of His Majesty's Forces and is at present on leave; and, seeing that the mother's allowance has been stopped, will he take steps to pay up arrears at once and find out who is to blame for such an error of over twelve months' standing?


Inquiry will be made, and I will inform the hon. Member of the result as soon as possible.
