In the second year of the operation of this act, two- tenths will be contributed according to the annual rate- able value, and the remainder according to the average in each parish for the time being. In the third year three-tenths, and so on until the whole of the common fund shall be contributed by the several parishes in the union, acceding to the annual rateable value of the pro- perty therein. Errors in making the estimates are pro- vided for, and existing debts and charges secured on the poor-rates of any parish will not be affected by this measure.
