HC Deb 16 June 1937 vol 325 cc388-9W
Captain Plugge

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether any payments have yet been made to the widows and/or dependants of the men who lost their lives on His Majesty's Ship "Hunter"?

Mr. Cooper

Payment of pension to the three widows commences to-morrow. Up to to-day inclusive they have still been in receipt of Naval allotments and marriage allowances. Payments to other dependants cannot commence until their eligibility, which is now being investigated, is established.
