asked the Pensions Minister if he will state what steps he proposes to take to grant suitable and sufficient pension allowances to the guardians of the two children of Private Deakin, No. 12091, Grenadier Guards, who died of wounds received in action on 12th July, 1915, aged respectively ten years and five years, whose mother died in June, 1917, and since which date no grants or allowances for their support have been made, and who are now being supported by a soldier relative demobilised on 4th March, 1919?

This Ministry has never had any information regarding children of the late Private Deakin, nor does it appear that separation allowance was claimed in respect of such during the soldier's lifetime. If my hon. Friend will furnish me with the names of the children and the name and address of their guardian, I will have the matter attended to immediately.
