HC Deb 30 June 1915 vol 72 c1810W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War why the allowance assigned to his mother by L. C. R. Jones, No. 11,066, Royal Irish Fusiliers, has not been paid to Mrs. Henry Jones, Kilduff, Belturbet; what is now being paid to this soldier; and how much is withheld to pay this allowance?


This case is at present under investigation, and the hon. Member will be informed of the result in due course.


asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he will say why dependant allowances hvae not been paid to Hugh Reilly, Shanna, Ballinagh, in respect of the requests and allowances made by his two sons, Private Patrick Reilly, No. 4,248, and Private Bernard Reilly, No. 3,237, Expeditionary Force, France, and both in the 2nd Battalion Royal Irish Fusiliers; and whether, seeing that the father of these two soldiers is a poor labouring man with a wife and two small children and entitled to consideration, the matter will be at once investigated and all arrears due paid without delay?


I will have inquiry made into this case, and let the hon. Member know the result in due course.
