HC Deb 12 May 1932 vol 265 c2080

asked the Attorney-General whether his attention has been called to a recent case in the Chancery Court in which a woman applied for a committal order against her husband for non-compliance with an order of the Divorce Court to pay alimony, and in which the judge said that he had no jurisdiction in the matter but considered that it was time the law was altered; and whether he contemplates legislation in the early future to deal with this class of case?

The ATTORNEY. GENERAL (Sir Thomas Inskip)

Yes, Sir; my attention has been called to the case in question, and I am giving the matter close consideration.
