§ Mr. SCANLAN
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he will state on what grounds the Local Government Board have disallowed the old age pension awarded by the Sligo (No. 2) sub-committee to John Kelly, of Carrowcrin, Knocknahur, county Sligo?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
John Kelly's claim to a pension was disallowed by the Local Government Board on the ground that his means, as calculated in accordance with the provisions of the Old Age Pensions Act, exceeded the statutory limit.
