asked the Undersecretary of State for War if he will have inquiry made into the case of the late Sergeant G. W. Scott, No. 839, 7th Battalion, Middlesex Regiment, Territorial Force, who, it is presumed, was killed in action on the 16th September, 1916, and who, being time-expired in February, 1916, re-engaged, and was notified officially that his account had been credited with the appropriate bounty, payment of which to his parents has been refused on the ground that he was killed before the expiration of the period of service for which he engaged; and will he now have the bounty paid?
§ Mr. FORSTER
Inquiry is being made, and I will communicate with the hon. Member as soon as I am in a position to do so.
