War Pensions. RADNORSHIRE COMMITTED WORK. A meeting of the Radnorshire War Pensions Com- mittee was held at the County Buildings, Llandrindod Wells, on Friday, when Mr J. O. Bufton, J.P., was voted to the chair. There were present Mrs Nicholls, Mrs Sims, Mrs Moseley, Dr. Harding. and Messrs. J. Hurst, W. Thomas, E. Price, J. W. Jones and T. Ten- rose, with the clerk (Mr H. Vaughan-Yaughan). A letter was read from the War Pensions Committee, asking the committee to submit an estimate of expen- diture, -and it was decided to leave this to the clerk, who was instructed to base his estimate on the expendi- ture of the past quarter. Another letter asked for the observations of the com- mittee with regard to the treatment of disabled sol- diers, and particulars of what was. being done- locally. Mr Bufton mentioned that there was one disabled soldier at Llandrindod Wells, Mrs Nicholls said there was one in her district, and Dr. Harding said there were three in his. it was left to the clerk to .-end a Mutable reply. Another letter referred to a convalescent home which a gentleman had kindly provided and fitted out for sol- diers on the cotst at Holyhead, and it was stated that, although there was accommodation for 12, there had never been more than four or the there at a time. Members were asked to make this provision known. and it was explained that there was -no other expense other than railway fare. The Surrev Committee wrote, suggesting that the members of" these committees should have railway ex- penses and subsistence allowance on the same scale as members of Insurance Committees, but it was pointed out that, as in Radnorshire the meetings were held on the same day as the Insurance Committee, it would not be necessary to pay the expenses of all members. The principle was, however, approved. A large number of pensions were dealt with.
