CEISTEANNA—QUESTIONS. ORAL ANSWERS. - ARMY PENSIONS ACT, 1923.

asked the Minister for Defence if he will state to whom persons claiming to be entitled to pension or gratuity under the Army Pensions Act, 1923, should make their applications, and if dependents or the men of the 1916 movement will have their claims considered by the same authority?

I anticipate that in about a week's time a public announcement will be made regarding the authority to whom all persons who appear to have claims under the Army Pensions Act, 1923, should make application. All claims will be dealt with by the one authority.
