HC Deb 20 March 1930 vol 236 c2089
46. Captain CAZALET

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the fact that the Government support the principle contained in the Nationality of Married Women Bill, he will give facilities for the progress of this Bill during the present Session?


I can hold out no hope of time being found for the further discussion of private Members' Bills. As the hon. and gallant Member is aware, the question of the nationality of married women is to be discussed at the International Conference on the Codification of International Law now sitting at The Hague.


In view of the fact that this Bill is entirely non-controversial, will the Prime Minister promise to give it such assistance as he can?


It is perfectly obvious that, if this law is to be changed, it must be done by a Government Bill, after consultation with the Dominions, and arrangements with foreign countries.

Are we to understand that the discussion on the Shop Hours Act tomorrow will be an academic discussion and nothing else?
