§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL (Sir CHARLES RUSSELL) (Hackney, S.)
I beg to move for leave to introduce a Bill relating to the guardianship and custody of infants. I may explain that the object of the measure is to give mothers a voice in the guardianship and custody of their children. The Bill was discussed at considerable length in the House of Lords last Session, and passed that House.
§ MR. STUART-WORTLEY (Sheffield, Hallam)
May I ask if this is the same Bill as that which was before the House last year?
§ Motion agreed to.
§ Bill ordered to be brought in by Mr. ATTORNEY GENERAL, The LORD ADVOCATE, Mr. Secretary CHILDERS, and Mr. BRYCE.
§ Bill presented, and read the first time. [Bill 139.]
