§ Mr. KENNEDY
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War why the pension allotted to Mrs. B. Smith, Mullymagavin, county Cavan, in respect of her son, Private P. Smith, No. 37855, 7th Gloucester Regiment, has been withdrawn; is he aware that this soldier contributed about £20 per year to his mother before enlistment, and that since he has alloted the usual 6d. per day; and will this case be reinvestigated?
§ Mr. FORSTER
I think the hon. Member must be referring to dependants' allowance. I am making inquiry, and will inform him of the result as soon as possible.
§ Mr. RUPERT GWYNNE
asked the Pensions Minister whether, in view of the increase in pensions to those invalided in the present War, any corresponding increase will be made in the case of pensions granted in former campaigns, such as the South African War?
