Relief to be stopped until the army pension is exhausted

A bereaved mother was not allowed public funds to support her as she had her son’s army pension to call on.

5th August 1919

Case of Ann Ford
The Relieving Officer for No. 1 District reported that this woman had lately received £9:5:0 arrears of Army Pension in respect of her son who was killed during the War and also £5 gratuity. As this was a non settled case it was resolved that the Clerk write to the Pontypridd Union recommending that relief be stopped until the money is exhausted.
