asked the Secretary of State for War the total number of unmarried wives' allowances paid during the recent war.

I regret that it is not possible to state the total number of unmarried wives' allowances paid during the recent war, but I can give the numbers of cases in which allowances were in payment to unmarried dependants at the following dates: 23rd May, 1942, 8,062; 7th August, 1943, 8,031; 22nd July, 1944, 6,046.
