asked the Minister of Pensions whether it is a strict rule of the Pension Ministry not to disclose the addresses of individuals receiving pensions; if so, how can an officer's deserted wife obtain an order for maintenance against her husband if she cannot find out where he is living; and can he see his way to grant some facilities to the deserted dependants to obtain some portion of the pension provided by the State for the express purpose of their upkeep and maintenance, and so ensure that the recipient of a pension cannot evade with impunity responsibilities justly attaching to him?
