§ Mr. AGG-GARDNER
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if the War Office can make arrangements for the wives and dependants of men who have enlisted to receive their separation allowances through the Post Office instead of by application to relief committees?
These allowances are at present distributed monthly by Army paymasters direct to the recipients, except in special cases, in which it is in the interests of the families that payment should be made more frequently. A scheme of weekly payment through the Post Office has been arranged, and will take effect in October.
§ Mr. GANZONI
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether any and, 949W if so, what steps are being taken to provide separation allowances for the wives of married Territorial officers on active service whose civil incomes have wholly or partly ceased since mobilisation?
Under the Regulations, Territorial officers are treated in the same way as Regular officers, to whose wives no separation allowance is given.
