§ Mr. JOHN DAVISON
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he is aware that the gratuity due to the parents of Private Alfred Halford, No. 1387, King's Royal Rifles, killed in action in August, 1915, has not yet been paid, although application has frequently been made for its payment; and whether he will sanction immediate payment, as the family are in distressed circumstances?
§ Mr. FORSTER
The amount due to this estate on account of war gratuity is now in course of payment to the soldier's father.
