WHEREAS the Ecclesiastical Commissioners for England have in pursuance of the Act of the thirty-third and thirty-fourth years of Her late Majesty Queen Victoria, chapter thirty nine, and of the Acts therein mentioned, that is to. say, the Act of the third and fourth years of Her said late Majesty, chapter one hundred and thirteen, the Act of the fourth and fifth years of Her said late Majesty, chapter thirty-nine, and the Act of the thirty-first and thirty-second years of Her said late Majesty, chapter one hundred and fourteen, duly prepared and laid before His Majesty in Council a scheme bearing date the fourth day of November, in the year one thousand nine hundred and nine, in the words and figures following, that is to say:—

"We, the Ecclesiastical Commissioners for England, in pursuance of the Act of the thirty-third and thirty-fourth years of Her late Majesty Queen Victoria, chapter thirty-nine, and of the Acts therein mentioned, that is to say, the Act of the third and fourth years of Her said late Majesty, chapter one hundred and thirteen, the Act of the fourth and fifth years of Her said late Majesty, chapter thirty-nine, and the Act of the thirty-first and thirty-second years of Her said late Majesty, chapter one hundred and fourteen, have prepared and now humbly lay before Your Majesty in Council the following scheme for effecting a transfer of the ownership of the advowson or perpetual right of patronage of and presentation to the church and cure (hereinafter called 'the said benefice') of Burstwick, in the county and diocese of York.

"Whereas the advowson or perpetual right of patronage of and presentation to the said benefice of Burstwick, is vested for an estate in fee simple free from incumbrances in William Lucas, of Number 25, Glasslyn-road, Crouch End, in the county of Middlesex, Esquire.

"And whereas the said William Lucas is desirous that the whole advowson or perpetual right of patronage of and presentation to the said benefice of Burstwick, now vested in him as aforesaid, should be transferred to and be vested in the Right Honourable and Most Reverend Cosmo Gordon, Archbishop of York, and his successors in the same Archbishoprick.

"And whereas the said Cosmo Gordon, Archbishop of York, is willing to accept such transfer, and in token of such his willingness and also in token that the same transfer has that consent of the Bishop of the diocese which by the Acts in the herein before mentioned Act recited, or by some or one of them, is made necessary he, the said Cosmo Gordon, Archbishop of York, has executed this scheme as hereinafter mentioned.

"And whereas the transfer of the patronage of the said benefice of Burstwick, which is hereinbefore mentioned and hereinafter recommended and proposed will render the same benefice more eligible for augmentation out of funds under our control, and this circumstance will in our opinion tend to make better provision for the cure of souls in the parish or district in or in respect of which the right of patronage or advowson so recommended and proposed to be transferred as aforesaid arises or exists, that is to say, in the parish of Burstwick.

'"Now therefore with the consent of the said William Lucas (in testimony whereof he has signed and sealed this scheme) and with the consent of the said Cosmo Gordon, Archbishop York (in testimony whereof he has signed this scheme and sealed the same with his Archiepiscopal seal), we, the said Ecclesiastical Commissioners for England, humbly recommend and propose that upon and from the day of the date of the publication in the London Gazette of any Order of Your Majesty in Council ratifying this scheme and without any conveyance or assurance in the law other than such duly gazetted Order the whole advowson or perpetual right of patronage of and presentation to the said benefice of Burstwick, now vested in him the said William Lucas as aforesaid, shall be transferred to the said Cosmo Gordon, Archbishop of York, and his successors in the same Archbishoprick and shall thereupon and thenceforth become and be absolutely vested in and shall and may from time to time be exercised by the said Cosmo Gordon, Archbishop of York, and by his successors in the same Archbishoprick for ever.

"And we further recommend and propose that nothing herein contained shall prevent us from recommending and proposing any further or other measures relating to the matters aforesaid or any of them in accordance with the provisions of the said Acts or of any of them or of any other Act of Parliament."

And whereas the said scheme has been approved by His Majesty in Council: now, therefore, His Majesty, by and with the advice of this said Council, is pleased hereby to ratify the said scheme, and to order and direct that the same and every part thereof shall be effectual in law immediately from and after the time when this Order shall have been duly published in the London Gazette pursuant to the said Acts, and His Majesty, by and with the like advice, is pleased hereby to direct that this Order be forthwith registered by the Registrar of the said diocese of York.

At the Court at Buckingham Palace, the 22nd day of November, 1909.

PRESENT,

WHEREAS the Ecclesiastical Commissioners for England have in pursuance of the Act of the thirty-third and thirty-fourth years of Her late Majesty Queen Victoria, chapter thirty-nine, and of the Acts therein mentioned, that is to say, the Act of the third and fourth years of Her said late Majesty, chapter one hundred and thirteen, the Act of the fourth and fifth years of Her said late Majesty, chapter thirty nine and the Act of the thirty-first and thirty second years of Her said late Majesty, chapter one hundred and fourteen, duly prepared and laid before His Majesty in Council a scheme bearing date the fourth day of November, in the year one thousand nine hundred and nine, in the words and figures following, that is to say:—

"We, the Ecclesiastical Commissioners for England, in pursuance of the Act of the thirty third and thirty-fourth years of Her late Majesty Queen Victoria, chapter thirty-nine, and of the Acts therein mentioned, that is to say, the Act of the third and fourth years of Her said late Majesty, chapter one hundred and thirteen, the Act of the fourth and fifth years of Her said late Majesty, chapter thirty-nine, and the Act of the thirty-first and thirty-second years of Her said late Majesty, chapter one hundred and fourteen, have prepared and now humbly lay before Your Majesty in Council the following scheme for effecting a transfer of the ownership of the advowson or perpetual right of patronage of and presentation to the church and cure (hereinafter called 'the said benefice') of Llanstephan in the county of Carmarthen and in the diocese of Saint David's.

To the Guardians of the Poor of the Kings Norton Union;—

And to all others whom it may concern.

Whereas by an Order, dated the 27th day of January. 1892 (hereinafter referred to as "the Order of 1892"), We, the Local Government Board, made Regulations with regard to the appointment by the Guardians of the Poor of any Union or Separate Parish in England and Wales of District Nurses to perform the duties therein set forth, and by Article III of that Order it is provided that no person shall be appointed to the office of District Nurse who has not undergone, for one year at least, a course of instruction in the Medical and Surgical Wards of a Hospital or Infirmary being a Training School for Nurses and maintaining a Resident Physician or House Surgeon;

And whereas by the Nursing in Workhouses Order, 1897 (hereinafter referred to as "the Order of 1897"), We directed that, from and after the 29th day of September, 1897, certain Regulations should, except in so far as We might assent to a departure therefrom, be in force in the several Poor Law Unions for the time being in England and Wales with respect to the nursing of the sick poor in Workhouses, and the appointment, qualification, and duties of Nurses, including Superintendent Nurses. therein; and by Article 111 (3) of that Order it is provided that any Superintendent Nurse appointed after the commencement of the Order shall, unless We dispense with the requirement, be a person qualified for the appointment by having undergone, for three years at least, a course of instruction in the Medical and Surgical Wards of any Hospital or Infirmary being a Training School for Nurses, and maintaining a Resident Physician or House Surgeon:

And whereas the Kings Norton Union Work of house Infirmary is a Training School for Nurses, and it is expedient that in other respects that Infirmary should be made available for the purposes of the qualifications to which the above cited provisions relate:

Now therefore, in pursuance of the powers given to us by the Statutes in that behalf, We hereby Order and Direct as follows:—

For the purposes of Article III of the Order of 1892 and of Article III (3) of the Order of 1897 the Kings Norton Union Workhouse Infirmary shall be deemed to be an Infirmary maintaining a Resident Physician or House Surgeon throughout the pencil during which the Medical Officer of the Infirmary devotes his whole time to the duties of his office, and resides near the Infirmary.

Given under the Seal of Office of the Local Government Board, this twenty ninth day of November, in the year one thousand nine hundred and nine.
