HC Deb 29 January 1948 vol 446 c189W
136. Major Legge-Bourke

asked the Minister of Health if all registrars have been instructed to call the attention of persons registering births to the new certificate obtainable on request.

Mr. Bevan

Supplies of the new form of short birth certificate have been sent to all Registrars with full instructions which make clear the intention that the new certificate should be regarded as the normal type for use when evidence of age and nationality only is required.
