CLASSIFICATION OF GIRLS AND BOYS
N a paper read at the Central Poor Law Conference,
undesirable that girls and boys who have been brought up in a pauper institution should return either to it or to the workhouse, and I showed what legal powers for avoiding it were possessed by Boards of Guardians. But as since then I have heard various opinions as to the age at which girls and boys are ordered to be placed in the adult wards of workhouses, I now give, for the convenience of those who do not possess a copy of the Orders of the Local Government Board, the entire Classification Order contained in the General Consolidated Order (Unions), 24th July, 1847 :
CLASSIFICATION OF THE PAUPERS. ART. 98. The paupers, so far as the workhouse admits thereof, shall be classed as follows :
CLASS 1. Men infirm through age or any other cause.
fifteen. CLASS 4. Women infirm through age or any other cause. CLASS 5. Able-bodied women, and girls above the age of fifteen
To each class shall be assigned that ward, or separate building and yard which may be best fitted for the reception of such
