HC Deb 14 July 1980 vol 988 c352W
Dr. Edmund Marshall

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what statutes would need to be amended to enable a person to succeed to the throne who had married a member of the Roman Catholic Church.

Mr. Whitelaw

The Bill of Rights and the Act of Settlement. Consideration would also need to be given to the provisions of the Coronation Oath Act 1688 and the Accession Declaration Act 1910.
