NEWPORT POOR LAW UNION. j A Division Sanctioned Newport Borough a Distinct Union. A communication has been received from die Local Government Board virtually sanctioning the proposed division of the Newport Poor La. Union into two parts. The preeent Union extends from Magor to St. Mellon's, and includes the borough of Newport and the Western Valleys of Monmouthshire up to Newbridge, The board which governs it, owing to the large- ness of its numbers, is quite an unwieldy body, consisting as it does of 80 members. The Unioo will be divided, so that the borough of Newport will be formed into a Poor Lw Uniou of itself, and the parishes outside Newport will constitute the new Poor Lave authority. Newport is at present represented on the Board of Guardians by 30 members, so that the division will bring the membership of the two boards within reasonable bounds. The Newport Union willretain the present Workhouse, whilst tho Caerleon Industrial Schools will be converted into a workhouse for the new Union. It is anticipated that the pauper children undet the new regime will be boarded out in cottage iioiiiefi-At least, as far as Newport if concerned. The new arrangement is lie come into force at the end of the term of office of tile present board-in April, 1898—so that a period of just over 18 months is given for carrying out the necessary work at Caerleon Schools and making the other arrangements necessary owinf to the change.
