Mr AUSTIN CHAPMAN asked the Acting Treasurer, upon notice -

1.   Is it a fact that drastic reductions, causing great privation and hardship, have been made in the pensions and allowances of war widows and mothers of deceased soldiers, in many cases as much as 50 per cent.?

2.   If so, will he inform the House why this has been done, and what are these folks expected to do when suddenly deprived of the means of living?
