§ Mr. FIELD
asked whether, in the event of the means of a pensioner, that is, a person in receipt of a pension, having so improved that there is a prospect for at least a week or a month they will exceed the rate of £31 10s. a year, that pensioner is to be regarded as no longer satisfying the statutory condition as to means?
§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
The question would be one for the local pension committee to determine, subject to appeal to the Local Government Board. Regard being had to the provisions of Section 4 of the Act, it is clear that the decision must in each case depend upon the circumstances of the particular case.
