LITTLE BUD WORTH. MEDICAL ATTENDANCE AT ALMSHOUSES.— On Friday afternoon, at the meeting of the Northwich Board of Guardians, presided ove r by Colonel France-Hayhurst, a letter was read from the Charity Commissioners with reference to the contention of the guardians that it was not their duty to provide medical attendance for the inmates of the Little Budworth Alms- houses, who are provided with relief to the extent of 2s. 6d. per week each, out of Lady Dodd's Charity. The Commissioners stated: Under the trusts, as known to the Commis- sioners, the trustees of the charity would not appear to be under any obligation to provide the almspeople with medical relief." The letter further stated that representation on the trust could only be given to the guardians by means of a scheme. The Commissioners had no power to establish a scheme for the regulation of the charity except on the application of the trustees, but, if the Guardians desired, a copy of the letter, would be sent to the trustees for their observations.— The Clerk said he quite agreed with the Com- missioners, and believed that the trustees of the charity had discharged all the duties incumbent upon them. Mr. Ivison (Winford) remarked that the matter had caused much feeling in the district, and he urged that it should be carried to the Local Government Board. To his mind the trustees were resorting to a technicality to get out of their liability. The matter eventually dropped, and the guardians will therefore make provision for the medical relief of the inmates.
