Maintaining A Father.

Herbert Corbert, miner, of Denaby Main, Yorkshire, was summoned for neglecting to pay to the support of his father.

Mr. Keyte, relieving officer, said the defendant’s father, John Corbett, became chargeable to the Lichfield Union last May, the cost of his maintenance being 5s 6d per week. He did not know anything of defendant’s circumstances.

The Board Guardians made order for defendant to pay 1s per week and he asked for an order for the amount.

The order was granted with costs, 11s 6d
