(2b.) Where the death of a member has been notified to the Repatriation Commission and the Commission has not determined the pension entitlement or otherwise of any dependant of the deceased member within one month after the date of such notification, the Minister may authorize a periodical payment to any such dependant who has been in receipt of payments under sub-regulation (1.) or sub-regulation (2a.) of this regulation for such period, or periods, and at such rates, as he considers reasonable..
