HC Deb 14 July 1914 vol 64 cc1710-1
75. Mr. ALDEN

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether, in order to assist the working of the Notification of Births Act, he has any objection to the superintendent registrars handing to the parents who attend to register a birth a notice containing a short reference to the provisions of the Act; and, if he has no such objection, whether he could see his way to issue a circular to the various superintendent registrars calling their attention to the matter?


In view of the fact that the notification under the Notification of Births Act has to be given within thirty-six hours of the birth of the child, while a period of six weeks is allowed for registration, I fear that the advantage of adopting my hon. Friend's suggestion would not compensate for the additional trouble caused.
