18 NOTE.—The 61st section of the Poor Law Amendment Act makes it incumbent on the justices to exainine and ascertain whether the rules, orders, or regulations of the Poor Law Commissioners for the time being in force, for the binding of poor children apprentices, have been complied with, and to certify the same at the foot of the indenture ; and without such certificate the indenture is void. This provision, which will take effect as soon as any such rules, orders, or regulations have come into operation, will therefore from that time require the vigilant attention of justices of the peace and parochial authorities. At present (March, 1840) no such rules, orders, or regulations have been promulgated.
