HL Deb 21 March 1972 vol 329 c603

[No. 2. ]

Clause 8, page 10, line 18, at end insert "or to an order which is for the time being registered in the High Court of Justice in Northern Ireland under Part II of the Maintenance and Affiliation Orders Act (Northern Ireland) 1966".


My Lords, this Amendment is linked with No. 4, and they apply only to Northern Ireland. The Amendment in the Schedule enables an overseas order registered in a magistrates' court under the Bill to be registered for enforcement in the High Court of Justice in Northern Ireland. The Amendment to Clause 8(2) secures that when an order is so registered it can be enforced only through the High Court. These Amendments bring the position in Northern Ireland into line with that in England and Wales. I beg to move.

Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.—(The Lord Chancellor.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
