HC Deb 14 March 1867 vol 185 c1800

said, he wished to ask Mr. Attorney General, Whether the attention of Her Majesty's Government has been called to the doubts which have arisen as to the proper period for the publication of Banns of Matrimony during the time of Morning Service, and to the diversity of practice consequent thereon; and, whether it is the intention of Her Majesty's Government to introduce any Measure for removing such doubts?


The subject, Sir, is under the consideration of the Government, but the course to be taken has not yet been decided upon. If the hon. Member will repeat his question in the course of a week or ten days I hope to be enabled to give him an answer.
