NAMING A CHILD:Belfast Constables Unusual Task.

The question of finding a name for a child who has been found by a Belfast constable in the streets of the city was discussed at yesterday's meeting of the Belfast Board of Guardians.

Information had been received from the police that they had failed to trace the parent of the child which Constable Robert T. Young, Roden Street Barracks, had found abandoned at the corner of Jacob Street and Stanley Street. The child was two weeks old on 28th October.

Constable Young attended the meeting and was informed by the chairman (Capt. E.J.L.Turner, M.C.) that to him was due the outstanding privilege of naming the foundling. If he did not like to name the child the Board would do it.

The constable said that his own son bore his Christian name, but he did not mind his surname being used for the child. He suggested that it might be named after the streets in the vicinity of which it was found - "Jacob Stanley Young".

A Member - Is the child a Jew?

Constable Young said that he belonged to the Church of Ireland and that he wished the child to be brought up under that denomination.

It was decided to drop the name "Jacob" and give the child the name "Stanley Young".

The Chairman (to the Constable) - We hope that your authorities will recognise that you have given good service in relation to this child. The Board are very much obliged to you.

The Medical Charities Committee, members of which had visited the dispensaries, reported that in the opinion of the medical officers the work at Templemore Avenue and Ballyhackamore dispensaries would be reduced by 50 per cent by the extension of medical benefits under the Health Insurance Act. At Springfield Road and Glengall Street dispensaries there was a decreased attendance but an increase was recorded at the Rumford Street and North Queen Street stations.

The report was adopted.

The Board declined to receive a deputation from the Belfast branch of the Irish Unemployed Workers Movement.

Mr Collins (Nat.) moved and Mr H Diamond (Nat.) seconded, that they should be heard, but Mr John Wilson J.P., pointed out that there was no indication in the letter of application as to what the deputation wished to discuss. Mr Jamieson seconded.

The voting against the motion was 19 to 4.
