HC Deb 15 May 1914 vol 62 cc1465-6W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland the reasons for disallowing John Maguire, of Drumhoura, the pension of 5s. per week awarded him by the Mullahoran sub-committee, county Cavan, on the 11th December, 1913?


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.
