§ 29. Mr. C. S. Taylor
asked the Attorney-General whether His Majesty's Government are prepared to accept the Denning Committee's recommendation that a register of all decrees of divorce and nullity should be kept at the principal registry in London, and with the Registrar of Marriages.
§ The Attorney-General (Sir Hartley Shawcross)
A register of all decrees, whether made in London or the provinces, is in fact kept at the Principal Divorce Registry. I do not think that the utility of requiring decrees to be noted in marriage registers by superintendent registrars would be in any way commensurate with the expense and labour involved.
