HC Deb 21 January 1969 vol 776 c95W
Mr. Wright

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what plans he has to introduce legislation to change the divorce laws in Scotland.

Mr. Ross

As I indicated in reply to a Question by my hon. Friend the Member for Aberdeen, South (Mr. Dewar) on 6th December, 1967, this has never been thought a suitable subject for Government legislation. The Government are however, prepared to consider a request for drafting assistance, should an hon. Member wish to introduce a Bill to reform the divorce law in Scotland on lines which appear likely to be generally acceptable.—[Vol. 755, c. 1420–21.]
