HC Deb 28 July 1959 vol 610 cc475-6

Lords Amendment: In line 1, leave out "and to improve" and insert: to legitimate the children of certain void marriages and otherwise to amend.

Mr. Renton

I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment.

This Amendment, and that in line 3, leave out "in other respects," stand together, and the Title of the Bill has to be amended so as to refer expressly to the object of Clause 2, which, as the House now knows, legitimates the children of a void marriage if either parent was ignorant that the marriage was void.

Question put and agreed to.

Remaining postponed Lords Amendment in the Title, line 3, agreed to.
