HC Deb 12 March 1925 vol 181 c1563W
Captain A. EVANS

asked the Home Secretary if he will introduce legislation to prohibit the publication of unsavoury details given in newspaper reports of the proceedings of the Divorce Courts by allowing the presiding Judge to issue a resume of the case for the Press, publication of the names of the contending parties to be published and admission of the public to remain as at present?


I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the Bill on this subject introduced on Tuesday by the right hon. Member for the Aston Division of Birmingham. The Government is considering the whole question carefully, in the light of the provisions of that Bill.
