Union Chargeability Act 1865
The Union Chargeability Act 1865 was a piece of British legislation passed after the Poor Law Amendment Act. Under the PLAA parishes were to group together to form unions so that the cost of building expensive workhouses was shared - the Union Chargeability Act was passed so that the financial burden of paupers was shared on a union-wide basis rather than a parish-wide basis.
