JUDGE AND COMPENSATION I A SWANSEA APPLICATION I At the Swansea County Court on Tues- day a question arc«e as to whether com- pensation money should be safeguarded for the future needs when urgently wanted at the moment. A workman named Moore had been killed whilst working on the new Swansea Training College. Compensation amounting to £ 200 had been paid for the benefit of two child- ren, and by the apportionment, each child is receiving 3s. per week, the bal- ance being invested. Mr Randell (of Messrs. Randell and Son) now applied, on behalf of children, for an increased week- ly apportionment on. the. ground that the children were seriously ill for want of proper nourishment and attention. His Hcncur demurred at the suggestion of crippling the compensation fund. Mr Randoll But supposing these child- ren should die, the money will then go to the Crown, as they have no legal re- presentative ? His Honour What is the matter with them ? Mr Randell Bronchial pneumonia, and I am told that the baby is very ill in- deed. The mother has only three shillings a week each to keep them, and they re- quiro proper nourishment and warm clothing. His Honour Then what it comes, to is this—that I am asked to give. this money for the benefit of the whole five-t,hat j,"l for three more who are not dependent. Mr Randell eventually asked that some- thing more might be given to meet the immediate wants. His Honour agreed to do this, a.nd in- crcased the weekly sum to 12s. for two months, and expressed his willingness to grant, a further lump sum with which to buy clothing for the two children who are ill.
