§ Lord Mackay of Clashfern
My Lords, I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 35. This amendment improves the Bill concerning the provision for Scottish courts to make maintenance orders. It ensures that in these cases in which a local authority or the Secretary of State is presently entitled by statute to raise an action for of affiliation and aliment in the sheriff court for the mother's place of residence against a defender resident in another part of the United Kingdom, the 185 local authority or the Secretary of State will continue to be able to do so in future.
§ Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in their said amendment.—(Lord Mackay of Clashfern.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
