A noble act by the Council, but possibly based on the fact that many people thought the war would only last a short time.
“Horsham Urban District Council chairman (Mr W.H. Anderson) said there were two or three men employed by the Council who had been called out to the war, and he thought he was right in saying there were one or two married men.
“Under the circumstances he should like to propose that for a month at any rate these men’s wages should be paid to their depedendants.
“It had been done by other councils and he felt sure this course of action would meet with the Council’s satisfaction.”
