Carmarthen Board of Guardians
Carmarthen Board of Guardians. OUTDOOR RELIEF"AND BILLETING. Mr J. Jones, Plas, Ferryside, presided at meeting of the Carmarthen Board of Guard- ians on Saturday. MASTER'S REPORT. The Master in his report stated: "Divine Service was conducted in the House on the 28th February by the Rev Vincent Taylor, B.A., English Wesleyan Church, and on Sun- day, 9th March, by the Rev J. Meirion Wil- liams, Welsh Wesleyan Church. The number of inmates in the house on the last day of the week was 65 against 77 for the corresponding period last year. The number of casual pau- r pers relieved during the fortnight was 51 against 109 far the same period last year. Mrs Barker, Oaklands, visited the House on the 9th inst. and gave tobacco"to" the male sick and tea to the fema.Ie sick. On Thurs- day the 11th t. Mrs W. J. Williams, Portis- oliff, Ferryside provided a treat to the inmates which consisted of tea, bread and butter, seed and currant cake, buns, etc. Mrs Williams is the Commandant of the Red Cross Nurses Detachment at Carmarthen and takes a great interest in the poor. The treat was thoroughly enjoyed. Periodicals were kindly given to the inmates by Mrs Jones,, Catherine street. VISITORS' REPORT. Mr J. P. Lewis and Mr T. Thomas who visited the House on the 25th February with- out notice reported as follows: "Visited the inmates in the different wards occupied by the inmates belonging to the Guardians and found all in good order. A portion of the building is still occupied by the Red Cross P, Association. Considering the difficulties of a joint occupation everything is carried on har- moniously and comfortably." OUTDOOR RELIEF. The reports of the reliving officers showed the amount of outdoor relief distributed dur- ing the fortnight ended en the previous Board day to have been as foltlows :First week 686 paupers, an increase of 4; expendi- ture, f:105 14s 3d, an increase of £ 8 3s 3d. Second week 686 pailpers, an increase of 2; expenditure. C91 12s 3d. an increase of 12s. TREASUR ER 'S R E-POR T. The Treasurer's report showed the balance in hand on the previous Board day to have been £ 4,506 6s Id. THE QUESTION OF RELIEF. Mr J. J. Bowen had given notice that the Board consider the question of relief to (1) dependents of soldiers, receiving separation allowance and (2) persons with whom soldiers are billeted. In moving the motion Mr Bowea said that there might be some sentimental reason for not considering the case of those who came under t;he first head. That, how- ever, did not apply to those on whom soldiers were billeted. The landladies were in a more independent position than before the war. It unfortunately is the case that people now are "on the make," and they think it their busi- ness to get as much as they can out of it. If these people were now in such a position that they d;d not require relief, the Board ought to have the courage to cut -it off. On the other hand if these people were not having more than sufficient relief, they would require increased relief ..when the present state of affairs catm-e to kin eni. A sum of 23s 7hI a week is paid for billeting soldiers at Carmar- then. Out of this there was a profit of 8s a week. The Chairman said that lie thought that the decision come to at the last meeting was to deter this matter. Mr Bowen said that they did not defer it to any particular date and they were therefore quie at liberty to take it now. Mr J. Sylvanus Williams seconded Mr J. J. Bowen. Mr J. P. Lewis asked if in the event of the relief being stopped and the soldiers being removed from Carmarthen in a few weeks, would the relief be restored. The Chairman said that if a resolution were adopted that ought to be put in. Rev A. F. Mills asked ijLtjjgy 0,111 get 23s H-d a week. In some parts of the country the amount was as low as 12s 6d. Mr D. tephens said that they only got £1 in Llandilo. Mr Stephens: I do not think that that affects us at all. Rev A. F. Mills said that he would move that things remain as they are. As a Board of Guardians he thought that they ought to take a very broad and charitable view of tlias matter. If these poor people are receiving a little money new it might be regarded as a little luxury. It is only for a short time they have enjoyed it, and the probability is that it -is only for a very short time that they will enjoy it. For the Board to reduce their pay even with the suggestion that they would re- urn to the usual amoun when the war is over seemed to him exceedingly narrow and ex- ceedingly shabby. The fact was chat if ibe Board did reduce the relief the jvi.
