I wish to advise the Deputy that my Department has recently sanctioned the payment of benefits in respect of the case referenced by the Deputy.  This matter took longer than usual to resolve, and I regret any distress this may have caused to the relatives of the deceased.  May I take this opportunity to offer them my condolences at this sad and difficult time.
