As the hon. Member realises, legislation would be necessary to give effect to this proposal, and I am not in a position to make any statement as to legislation on this subject.
Would the right hon. Gentleman encourage legislation in this direction, seeing that blood-tests would be a very useful method of settling disputes which could not otherwise be settled, and in view of that, would he take steps to have the whole matter seriously considered?
There are a great many matters which probably deserve further attention here, and I doubt whether this is one which could be put in the front of the Government programme. Of course, it is a matter upon which any private Member might hope to bring in a Bill at the proper time.
