§ MR. HENNIKER HEATON (Canterbury)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies is it true that the Government of England has advised the Queen to assent to the Divorce Act recently passed by the Parliament of Victoria; and whether he can briefly state in what respect does the said Act differ from the Law of Divorce in England?
§ BARON H. DE WORMS
The reply to the first paragraph of the question is in the affirmative. It is not possible, within the limits of an answer, to give a correct statement of the provisions of the Act, which are numerous, or to compare them with those of the English law; but it may be stated generally that the grounds for divorce are largely extended.
