liA3 A WAR PENSIONS COMMITTEE Appointment of Vocation and Inquiry Officer. A meeting of the Breconshire War Pensions Committee was held on Tues- day afternoon at Brecon, Mr A. Beckwith (chairman) presiding. Capt. Vaughan, inspector for the Ministry of Pensions, was in attendance. FUND GRANTS. The Ystradgynlais District. Com- mittee wrote asking that, owing to great delay in obtaining payment of grants sanctioned from the King's Fund to assist men starting in business and trade, arrangements be made for advan- cing money on loan from the County War Fund. The Secretary (Mr A. Jolly) stated that when claims were sanctioned they were paid. No actiorr was taken on the letter, but in regard to a particular case mentioned by Ystradgynlais members it was decided to make a direct appeal to the Minister of Pensions. YSTRADGYNLAIS WANTS PAY STATIONS. Another letter from the Ystradgynlais District Committee asked that rooms should be provided at several centres in the district where their clerk could attend one day a week and make pay- ments and give information, and that the rent of the rooms and the clerk's travelling expenses be paid. This was referred to the Finance Committee. SAD IIITYNM AWI! STOHY. Mr Richards (Brynmawr) drew atten- tion to a case in which, he said, the father of two sons killed in the war was buried by the paiish, and the mother, who was on crutches, was getting Gs a week from the parish. It was expected that an application which had been put in some time since for a parent's special pension would be granted, but there had been delay owing to confusion as to the sons' regimental numbers. In the meantime he thought the Pensions Committee should make a recoverable advance. The Secretary remarked that appar- ently parish relief had been granted in accordance with the circumstances and if the committee now made a grant it would interfere with that basis. Mr Richards said the Guardians wanted the committee to deal with the case, as it was more one for pension than for relief. Mr Hugh Jones (Brynmawr) supported 1 Mr Richards's statements. Mr Treharne proposed that the sum of 15s per week, which it had been stated was the amount of pension that would be granted, be paid from the County War Fund as a recoverable advance. Nothing was done in the matter, how- ever, there apparently being some mis- understanding amongst some of the members. Neither of the Brynmawr members seconded the motion, they, taking up the attitude (our representa- tive understood) that it ought to be seconded by someone not connected with Brynmawr, and others rather expected one of them to do so. YOC'ATION I Three) candidates for the post of vocation and inquiry officer (salary E156 per annum and travelling expenses), selected by the Emergency Committee, attended for interview—Mr Henry Ewart Price, 33, Newgate street, Brecon; Mr David Cleaver Perkins, Rock terrace, Gilwei-ii and Mr Horace John Watts, Maesymeillion, Ystradgynlais. The voting went in favour of Mr Perkins and he was then unanimously appointed. COMMITTEE AI'I'OINTMKNT. The Brecon Ibranch of the National Association of Discharged Sailors and Soldiers submitted three names of mem- bers for the selection of a representative to serve on the Brecon District Com- mittee—Messrs Jonah Williams, J. S. Williams, and J. 0. Jones, sec. On the motion of Mr David Powell- who remarked that the secretary would probably know more than anyone else about the affairs of the branch—seconded by Mr James Powell, Mr J. 0. Jon es was appointed.
