HC Deb 29 November 1917 vol 99 c2250W

asked if, under the proposed new Regulations relating to pay and separation allowance for soldiers, a soldier who has allotted 3s. 6d. a week to his parents but has failed to obtain Government separation allowance will be relieved from the necessity of paying the allotment, as other soldiers will be who have succeeded in obtaining Government separation allowance?


I would ask the hon. Member to await the Royal Warrant which is about to be issued.


asked the Postmaster-General whether, having regard to the hardship that will fall upon the dependants of soldiers, pensioners, and dependants of deceased soldiers if special arrangements are not made to pay their allowances for Chrismas week in advance, on account of the closing of money order offices on Christmas Day and Boxing Day under the Bank Holidays Act, he will take action with the object of arranging for all allowances and pensions due during Christmas week to be paid a week in advance, as was done last year?


It has been already arranged that Army allowances due on the 24th and 25th and pensions due on the 26th December will be payable a week in advance.
