HC Deb 02 April 1912 vol 36 cc1143-4W

asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware that John O'Dwyer (Kate) and Mary O'Dwyer, Ballagh, Gooldscross, county Tipperary, were allowed an old age pension by the Cashel pension sub-committee but were disallowed by the Local Government Board on appeal; and whether, seeing that they live with their son on a farm of twelve acres, valuation £4 10s., and that John O'Dwyer (Kate) is in receipt of an Army pension of 6d. per day for service in the Indian Mutiny, he will state the grounds upon which the Local Government Board determined they were not entitled to a pension?


These claims were disallowed on the grounds that the claimants' means derived from the farm and the Army pension exceeded the statutory limit.
