HC Deb 10 July 1922 vol 156 cc839-40
77. Lieut.-Colonel HURST

asked the Minister of Health whether the promised revision of the Regulation under which the Registrar-General has hitherto declined to register births in the cases of children who have attained the age of seven has now taken place; and what is the new Regulation on this point?


It has been decided to revoke the Regulation in question, thus removing any limitation as to the period within which an application may be made. A public announcement will be issued as to the effect of the new arrangements.


Would the right hon. Gentleman report to the College of Surgeons any cases of children born dead who have reached the age of seven years?
