§ Mr. Isaacs
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty why the allowance due to the wife of L.X.F. 885488 Ronald Bond, Royal Navy Special Reservist, called up for training on 1st November, was not paid until 22nd November.16W
§ Mr. J. P. L. Thomas
I assume the right hon. Member is referring to Naval Airman L/FX. 885458 Ronald Ernest Boud. Owing to an error in one of the certificates accompanying the application form for marriage allowance, it was necessary to have the application recertified. Payment of the £6 due was authorised by the Admiralty on the 20th November, 1952. I much regret any inconvenience that has been caused.
