HC Deb 18 April 1958 vol 586 c587

As amended (in the Standing Committee), considered.

3.57 p.m.

Mr. Somerville Hastings (Barking)

I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time.

The Bill was not opposed on Second Reading and in Committee. It seeks to put right a small error, as I see it, in existing legislation in that as the law stands non-Conformist and Roman Catholic chapels have to wait a year after having been built before they can be used for the solemnisation of marriages. The Bill makes it possible for them to be used as soon as they are completed.

I wish to thank the Home Office for much assistance in the preparation of the Bill.

Question put and agreed to.

Bill accordingly read the Third time and passed.

Forward to
