HC Deb 08 August 1919 vol 119 cc741-2W

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that Sergeant Bicknell, No. 7497, 5th Battalion Wilts Regiment, was killed in Mesopotamia on 5th December, 1917, and that the war gratuity earned by him has not yet been paid to his relatives in spite of repeated applications; and if he can expedite the payment?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply which I gave on the 8th July to the hon. and gallant Member for Holborn and to the notice which appeared in the Press on the 25th ultimo, regarding the issue of war gratuities due to the estates of deceased soldiers.
