Allowance from Works 1 NOT A QUESTION OF CHARITY. I At the Llanelly Tribunal on Thursday, John H. Hughes, Class A, labourer at the Steel Works, said that if he joined the Colours his mother would be depen- dent on the earnings of his two brothers. Lieut.. Ingrams: You have two other brothers ? Hughes: Yes. 0 How many of them are in the Army r- None, they are under age. One earns 14s. and the other 15s. a week. There are also four young children at school. What rent do you pay ?-It is our own house. Lieut. Ingrams: I do not see why you should not get 17s. 6d. to 20s. a week allowance. Hughes: That would not be sufficient. The Mayor: The South Wales Works would allow something. Coun. Roberts: I do not think that should be considered. That is charity. The Mayor: We are considering the domestic grounds. Lieut. Ingrams: These allowances should not be called charity. The money is given in recognition of services to the firm. Coun. Roberts: The man's case would be considered as partly dependent by the Joint Board. Lieut. Ingrams: There would he no serious Hardship. At the minimum the man would receive 17s. 6d. from the Government. Hughes stated that he was prepared to go in six months. Lieut. Ingrams: I think that is too long. Appeal dismissed, the man not to be called up for three months.
