HC Deb 01 March 1915 vol 70 c578W
Sir J. D. REES

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that a wife's separation allowance is at present stopped whenever her husband is sentenced to imprisonment or detention of over twenty-eight days, whereby she becomes a charge on the Prince of Wales' National Relief Fund; and whether the War Office will arrange that separation allowance in such cases shall be met from some other source in order to avoid the undue depletion of the said fund?


It has been decided that separation allowances shall continue in these cases so long as the soldier remains in the Army.
