§ Sir R. Young
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that Private J. Fletcher, No. 10545394, Royal Army Ordnance Corps, joined the Army on 10th April and immediately made an allowance to his mother, but no payment has yet been received by her; and will he give the reasons for this and expedite regular payments of the allowance made?
§ Captain Margesson
No application was made by this soldier for the payment of an allotment to his mother until 14th July, when he applied for an allotment to be paid with effect from 21st May. The initial payment was made the day after the application was received by the regimental paymaster.
