§ Mr. VINCENT KENNEDY
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland the reasons for disallowing John Maguire, of Drumhoura, the pension of 5s. per week awarded him 1466W by the Mullahoran sub-committee, county Cavan, on the 11th December, 1913?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
John Maguire's claim was disallowed by the Local Government Board on appeal on the ground that they were not satisfied that his means were less than £31 10s. a year. He resides on a well-stocked and well-cropped farm of twelve acres, which it was alleged he had assigned to his son, but it would appear that he has retained a life interest in the farm.
