HC Deb 04 June 1930 vol 239 c2173W

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he has received a resolution passed by the Church of Scotland Assembly asking him to introduce legislation for the purpose of prohibiting irregular marriages taking place at Gretna Green which are not registered; and whether he proposes to take any action in the matter?


I have not yet received a resolution on this subject, but I am aware of the discussions which took place in the General Assembly. I need not say that any proposals submitted will be carefully considered.
