Mr. CREECH JONES
asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been drawn to the recent rulings and judgments in cases of infanticide; and whether he proposes to consider the introduction of any Measure to modify the present ambiguity in the law?
§ Mr. GOLDIE
asked the Home Secretary whether he will consider the introduction of legislation to amend the Infanticide Act, 12 and 13 George V, c. 18, by the insertion of a definition Clause whereby it shall be enacted that for the purposes of the said Act a newly-born child shall be deemed to be any child whose death occurs within one month of birth?
§ Sir J. SIMON
I have noted my hon. Friend's suggestion and propose to confer with the Lord Chancellor on the question.
