Commencement Orders yet to be applied to the New Parishes (Scotland) Act 1844

Commencement Orders bringing legislation that affects this Act into force:

6 In certain cases a parish, though divided, may remain as one parish for purposes of poor.U.K.

And whereas in some large and populous parishes which it may be considered necessary or proper to divide into two or more parishes there are a number of poor persons, the greater portion of whom reside in or near the same locality, such locality being sometimes the least wealthy, whereby the particular territorial division of such large and populous parish which would be most expedient and advantageous in other respects would operate injuriously or unjustly if each of the new parishes into which it may be divided was left to provide from its own resources for that portion of the poor of the original parish resident within the territory of such new parish: it shall be lawful for the said lords of council and session, if they see cause so to do, in any judgment to be by them pronounced dividing or disjoining a parish, to declare and provide, that, not withstanding such division or disjunction, the original parish and the several new or separate parishes thereby erected within the bounds thereof shall, in so far as regards the support and management of the poor, and all matters and questions connected therewith, remain and be regarded as one parish; and in every such case there shall be one kirk session, consisting of the members of the kirk sessions of all the parishes within the bounds of the original parish, in all matters and questions relating to the support and management of the poor; and the session clerk of the original parish shall, during his incumbency act as clerk of the said kirk session in all such matters and questions.
