§ Mr. SHORTT
asked the Attorney-General whether, in view of the decreasing birth-rate and the increasing number of cases of bigamy due to the existing system of permanent separation without divorce, he will introduce a Bill giving to all separation decrees and orders the effect of divorce after they have been in force for five years?
§ Sir F. SMITH
The present time is not opportune for legislation of the kind indicated by my hon. Friend.
