Welshpool Pensions SubCommittee.


Welshpool Pensions Sub- Committee. A meeting of the Welshpool Pensions Sub- Committee was held at the Town Hall, Welsbpool, on Monday. Mr David Pryce (chairman) pre- sided, and there were also present—Messrs Wm. Humphreys, J. Pugh, and E. R. Owen, with Mr J. E. Tomley (clerk) and Messrs H. J. Molineux, W. Perry, T. F. S. Forse, and J. J. Marshall (pension officers). At the previous meeting of the Committee a resolution was passed, and ordered to be sent to the Boards of Guardians in the area, expressing the hope of the Committee that the Boards would continue to allow to paupers who obtain old-age pensions the services of the medical fifficers. Replies were read from Clun, Forden, Llanfyllin, and Newtown Unions approving of the sugges- tion of the Committee, while the Atcham Board Board wrote to say that they had taken no action in the matter. In reply to an enquiry by the Chairman, the Clerk said that the number of pensions allowed in county up to the present is 1,786, and the weekly amount of pensions £ 431 3s Od, or X22,417 4s Od yearly. Some of the pensioners had, however, died since the pensions were granted, and he hoped at the end of the year to present a report showing the actual number then in receipt of pensions in the county. Ninety-two applications for pensions were dealt with. Eighty-five were allowed 5s weekly, and one 4s. Two were disallowed and four deferred. Out of the pensions granted, seventy- four were to persons who had previously been disqualified by poor-relief. It was decided to hold a special meeting at the rising of the County Council on Monday, the 19th instant, to deal with outstanding claims in time for the pensioners to have their books for the new year.
