asked the Minister for Defence if he will state the reason why Mrs. J. Brophy, Thomas Street, Droichead Nua, Co. Kildare, mother of Private C. Hughes, Army No. 13466, Curragh Hospital, has not received dependent's allowance since last October, and whether enquiries will be made with a view to payment of arrears.
CEISTEANNA—QUESTIONS. ORAL ANSWERS. - DEPENDENT'S ALLOWANCE (DRIOCHEAD NUA).
The dependent's allowance formerly paid to Mrs Brophy in respect of her son, Private Hughes, was stopped because she was in receipt of an allowance in respect of her husband, who is serving in the Army. The allowance in respect of her son will not be resumed.
