32. Captain COOTE
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that Gunner A. Byquane, No. 876117, Royal Field Artillery, of Horwich, was demobilised from the Army in February last and has not yet received his gratuity; and whether he will cause inquiry to be made, and so prevent the hardship caused by the delay in paying gratuities?
§ Mr. ILLINGWORTH
A gratuity was reported by the Regimental Paymaster as due to No. 876117 Gunner A. Bygrave, Royal Field Artillery, of 14, Garden Street, Dereham, near Norwich, and a gratuity book was forwarded in ordinary course to the post office, Dereham, but it was recalled, because in the opinion of the postmaster the address was incorrect. The book is now at the Savings Bank awaiting application by the gratuitant If this is the case to which the hon. Member refers, perhaps he will supply me with the gratuitant's present address.
