§ Mr. JOYCE
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether his attention has been called to the circumstances attending the death of Henry Hartney, gunner, Royal Garrison Artillery, regimental number 27,073, who was killed accidentally while on duty and obeying orders at the Forth Bridge in the month of September, 1913; what, if anything, has been done for his widowed mother in the way of compensation for the death of her son; what inquiry has been held in this case; and will the War Department grant some compensation to his mother to help her in the loss she has sustained by the death of her son?
§ Mr. TENNANT
The inquiries are not yet complete. I will communicate with the hon. Member when a final decision has been reached.
