HC Deb 14 October 1915 vol 74 c1500W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether Army Order 218 of 1915, relating to a time limit for applications for separation allowances for soldiers' dependants, is for the present held in abeyance; and, if so, what steps have been taken to acquaint soldiers, dependants, and the public of this fact?


The Order has been held in abeyance pending experience of the new system of claiming separation allowance for dependants introduced on the first of this month. I will consider the suggestion that a public notification should be made.
