HL Deb 18 July 1935 vol 98 c503

Order of the Day for the Second Reading read.


My Lords, the object of this small Bill is to confirm four Provisional Orders made by my right honourable friend the Home Secretary under the Marriages Validity (Provisional Orders) Acts, 1905 and 1924. In each case the question as to the validity arises from the status of the building or edifice in which the marriages were solemnized. The Orders to be confirmed by the Bill are therefore of the normal type of Marriages Provisional Orders. As no doubt your Lordships are aware, the Orders have no effect until they have been confirmed by Parliament. I beg to move.

Moved, That the Bill be now read 2a.—(The Earl of Feversham.)

On Question, Bill read 2a.
