HC Deb 03 March 1997 vol 291 cc505-6W
40. Sir Michael Neubert

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department what results he expects from the institution of National Marriage Week; and what contribution has been made by his Department to its objectives. [16737]

Mr. Streeter

National Marriage Week was organised independently by the Christian charity Marriage Resource. My right hon. and noble Friend the Lord Chancellor was pleased to accept an invitation from Marriage Resource to speak at an event during National Marriage Week. He called on all those who believe in the institution of marriage to work to promote a positive and realistic vision of marriage. I and my colleagues in the Government are committed to doing all we can to support marriage.
