HC Deb 12 July 1915 vol 73 cc661-2W

asked the Chief Secretary on what grounds the Local Government Board for Ireland disallowed the old age pension of 3s. per week granted by the pensions committee of the Cork district (Station, Cork, No. 11) to John Harrington, seeing that the only property possessed by the said John Harrington is a pension of 10s. a week allowed to him by his former employers; and whether the question will be reconsidered?


In addition to the pension of 10s. per week referred to in the question, the claimant lives rent free and has three sons boarding with him, and in these circumstances the Local Government Board considered that he was ineligible for a pension. It is not open to the Board to reconsider a claim on which their decision has been given.
