to institute and conduct proceedings for the purpose of enforcing obedience to the said Acts, or any of them, within their union or parish; and as to all expenses incurred by any person so appointed, or by any registrar of births and deaths, or by any medical officer of health appointed under an Act of Parliament, in proceedings for enforcing penalties under the said Acts, or any of them, if the justices or court before whom such proceedings are had certify that such expenses ought to be allowed, such court or justices shall ascertain the amount thereof,' and such amount shall be payable out of the rates for the relief of the poor of the parish where the person for the time being dwells in respect of whose default or offence the same were instituted;' and the court or justices shall ascertain the amount of such expenses. And proceedings for enforcing penalties under any of the said Acts, on account of neglect to have a child vaccinated, may be taken at any time during which the parent or guardian is in default.3

It will be seen that there is a repetition here. 2 It will be observed that the costs were to be charged to the parish of the offender's residence, and not to the common fund of the union, where the parish was within a union.
