HC Deb 26 March 1956 vol 550 cc1746-7
2. Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

asked the Attorney-General whether he will introduce legislation to give effect to any of the recommendations of the Royal Commission on Marriage and Divorce.

The Attorney-General

The Government, before entertaining any proposals to introduce legislation, intend to give to the Report more consideration than has been possible in the six days which have elapsed since it was published.

Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

Can the right hon. and learned Gentleman give an assurance that the Government will at least seek to legislate on the unanimous recommendations of the Report, even if the rest of it is regarded as just another example of unholy deadlock?
