§ Mr. VINCENT KENNEDY
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland on what grounds the pension has been withdrawn from Letitia Willock, of Ballinacargy, county Cavan, No. 2,095; and he will give in detail what means she is alleged to be possessed of, and, in the case of cattle, the individual value put on each beast?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
Mrs. Willock's claim for an old age pension was disallowed on the ground that the Local Government Board were not satisfied that her means did not exceed the statutory limit. Her husband has a fairly well-tilled farm of twenty-four acres, carrying ten head of cattle and a horse, in addition to pigs, goats, and fowl. The Board have no information as to the precise value of each cow or calf, but based their decision on the estimated yearly income derivable from a farm of this nature and extent carrying the stock referred to.
