Part of Legitimacy Bill – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 28th July 1959.

Alert me about debates like this

This Amendment, and that in line 3, leave out "in other respects," stand together, and the Title of the Bill has to be amended so as to refer expressly to the object of Clause 2, which, as the House now knows, legitimates the children of a void marriage if either parent was ignorant that the marriage was void.
