If we read the section as it now stands, with the amendment proposed, perhaps the result will be more clear:
The pension of a widowed mother shall not be reduced on account of her having an income from other sources which does not exceed two hundred and forty dollars per annum, such income being considered to include the contributions from children residing with or away from her whether such contributions have actually been made or are deemed by the Commissioners to have been made.
The contributions which are deemed to have been made are those from the children living with the mother.
