Old-Age Pensions in Montgomery- shire. A meeting of the sub-committee was held at the Police Court, Newtown, on Tuesday. Mr Hugh Lewis presided, and there were also present Colonel Pryce-Jones, Messrs Richard Rees, J. Hamer Jones, and D. Hamer, with Mr J. E. Tomley. clerk, and Messrs W. Taylor, L. Jones Williams, and S. R. Adcock. pension officers. Twenty-five claims were considered, and of these eighteen were allowed 5s weekly, one 3s, and one Is. One clailn was struck out, and four were deferred; one was disallowed on account of means and one pension was increased from 3a to 5a. weekly. Six of the claims allowed from the Machynlleth district were those of persons at present in receipt of poor-relief whose disqualification for a pension will be removed on the first day of January next. A large number of similar claims are expected, and the committee fixed a special meeting for Tuesday, the 22nd inst., to deal with these to avoid delay to the recipients. A matter worthy of the consideration of the Poor-law Guardians throughout the county was mentioned at the meeting, viz, the reluctance of persons now in receipt of out-relief to claim pen- sions on account of the fear of losing the attend- ance of the parish doctor which they now receive free. The hope was expressed that the Guardians would not deprive the old people of this attend- ance, as no saving to the rates would be gained thereby.
