Full text
49. The widow of a worker who, before 1 January 1979, was entitled to a monthly payment under section 35 as it then existed, loses her rights to that payment when she remarries or she lives with a man as husband and wife for three years or for one year if a child was born of their union and they were publicly represented as consorts.
The payment of the widow is then replaced by the payment of an amount equal to the total of the payment for two years.

49. Where the Commission finds that the widow to whom compensation has been awarded is a common prostitute or is living with any man in the relation of man and wife without being married to him, the Commission may discontinue entirely or suspend compensation to such widow or divert such compensation in whole or in part to any other dependant or dependants of the workman.
