HC Deb 12 February 1951 vol 484 cc16-7W
40. Mr. Storey

asked the Attorney-General whether he will make a statement upon the conclusions of the Supreme Court Rules Committee as a result of their consideration of amendments to the Matrimonial Causes Rules with a view to their consolidation and particularly of the question whether the pronouncing of a decree in a divorce action should be notified by the Court to the respondent.

The Attorney-General

The Matrimonial Causes Rules, 1950, which came into operation on 1st January, 1951, consolidate and make a number of amendments in the earlier Rules. The Supreme Court Rule Committee decided that it would be unjustifiable, in view of the amount of work involved, to require the Court to notify the respondent of the making of a divorce decree.
