§ Mr. BYRNE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the wife of Sapper James Murphy, No. 46,995, Royal Engineers, killed at Loos, has been awarded 10s. 6d. pension for herself and three children, Ring Paper No. M3,l73; and will he state whether that is the amount payable in such cases, and cause inquiries to be made as to this allowance?
§ Mr. FORSTER
The pension granted is for the children. It appeared that the soldier was separated from his wife and not supporting her, but the facts are under inquiry.
