HC Deb 28 January 1937 vol 319 c1055
34. Mr. Mander

asked the Home Secretary whether it is proposed to introduce legislation to amend the Act of Settlement with a view to making clear that the Princess Elizabeth is the sole heir to the Throne and does not share it jointly with her sister on the analogy of the Peerage Law?

Sir J. Simon

No, Sir, there is no reason to do so. His Majesty's Government are advised that there is no doubt that in present circumstances Her Royal Highness the Princess Elizabeth would succeed to the Throne as sole heir.
