HC Deb 24 October 1972 vol 843 c266W
Mr. Bishop

asked the Attorney-General what proposals he has to change the law with regard to the domicile of married women, even if the parties are living apart, where it is prejudicial to the inheritance rights of women and to the custody of minors; and if he will make a statement.

The Attorney-General

The report of the working party on the domicile of married women was submitted to my noble Friend the Lord Chancellor and my right hon. Friends the Secretary of State for Scotland and the Lord Advocate last week. That report must be studied before any firm proposals can be formulated.
