§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Dr. Macnamara)
The compensation awarded to the widow of the late Chief Yeoman Pook is a gratuity of £219 1s. The award has been made under the provisions of the Government scheme framed under the Workmen's Compensation Act. As her husband was employed as a civilian, Mrs. Pook is ineligible for a pension.
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
The only assistance possible is that to which I have referred, the gratuity from the scheme under the Workmen's Compensation Act.
