§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he has received a copy of the Welsh Consumer Council's survey of registrar office marriages, entitled "Bride and Gloom"; and whether there is any action he can take to improve the situation where necessary.
§ Mr. John Morris
I have seen a copy of the survey. The responsibility for administering the registration service lies, however, entirely within the county councils in consultation with the Registrar General.
