§ MR. P. A. TAYLOR
asked Mr. Attorney General, Whether his attention has been called to a decision lately given at the Manchester Police Court to the effect that a married woman judicially separated from her husband, and to whom a protection order had been granted, had nevertheless no legal redress against her husband who had taken away her property; and, whether, if such be the state of the Law, he will propose the necessary amendment of "The Married Women's Property Act, 1870?"
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL (Sir JOHN HOLKER),
in reply, said, before the Question of the hon. Member appeared on the Paper his attention was not called to the subject. Since Notice of the Question was given he had endeavoured, but without success, to ascertain the nature of the decision. If the hon. Member would furnish him with further particulars, he would be happy to state whether, in his opinion, any amendment of the law was necessary.
