HC Deb 09 March 1981 vol 1000 cc251-2W
35. Mr. Newens

asked the Attorney-General when he anticipates microfilms of birth, marriage and death certificates will be available to the public for research purposes; and if he will make a statement.

The Attorney-General

I have nothing to add to the answer which my hon. and Learned Friend the Solicitor-General gave to the hon. Member on 30 January. The possible availability of microfilms of 100-year-old registers depends upon the outcome of the feasibility study announced by the Lord Chancellor in another place on 8 December 1980.
