§ Sir J. Grigg
In the continued absence of information from the Japanese Government it has been decided that, unless death is previously reported, the allowances now being paid to the families and dependants of personnel missing as a result of operations in the Far East shall remain unchanged during the next three months. The position will be kept under review.
