HC Deb 05 June 1919 vol 116 c2206

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that the sacrifices and casualties of the War have created many cases in which there is a desire on the part of men whose brothers have been killed to enter into matrimony with their sisters-in-law, and thus to make provision for them and their families and to mitigate the privation and suffering caused by the death of the breadwinner; and whether he will introduce legislation to put marriage with a deceased brother's wife upon the same footing as marriage with a deceased wife's sister?


I have nothing to add to the answer which I gave to the hon. Member for South Hackney on the 27th of May.
