§ Mr. N. MACLEAN
asked the Minister of Pensions whether Private Robert Mair, No. 43089, King's Own Scottish Borderers, made application for allowance for his wife and submitted particulars in January, 1919; and whether no reply has been made; and when a decision will be made-in the case?
§ Sir J. CRAIG
Private Mair is not entitled to wife's allowance, as he married his present wife after his discharge from the Army. I do not understand the statement that he submitted particulars in January, 1919, as the wife's allowance for disabled men was only authorised in August last. It is payable from the 3rd September.
