§ 77. Mr. GEORGE EDWARDS
asked the Minister of Pensions if his attention has been drawn to the case of Mrs. E. Howman, the mother of the late Sergeant Joseph Chad Howman, No. 2,100, 21st London Rifles, who made application for pension in October, 1919, which, after repeated applications, was granted from June, 1920; and whether, in view of the fact that the original application was first made in October, 1919, he will have inquiries made as to the reason this pension was only granted from June, 1920?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of PENSIONS (Major Tryon)
I am informed that the earliest 767 application by Mrs. Howman which has been received in the Ministry is dated 25th June, 1920. In view, however, of the statement made in the last part of the question, I am having inquiries made, and will communicate the result to my hon. Friend.
