§ 44. Mr. Rankin
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will enter into consultations with the United States Government with a view to making the enforcement of paternity orders served on United States soldiers in this country more effective.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
No. The enforcement of affiliation orders made against United States servicemen serving in this country is a matter for the courts. Such United States servicemen are subject to the normal processes of enforcement and, as far as I am aware, this enforcement presents no unusual difficulties.8W Any proposals for a change in the law would be a matter for my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary.
