Interesting Bills Making Their Way Through Parliament


Some interesting reading ahead for those with tenacity and an enquiring mind.

Researching Reform

We’ve just spotted some very interesting new Bills going through Parliament at the moment, many of which focus on children and families, and thought we would share them with you.

First up is the Registration of Marriage Bill, which has been put forward by a group of Conservative, Labour and Lib Dem politicians. There is no text for the Bill available yet, so it’s not clear what the Bill seeks to achieve, but we did wonder whether it had anything to do with the excellent Equal Civil Partnerships movement, which seeks to make civil marriages available to opposite sex couples (it is currently only available to same sex couples). The Bill had its first reading yesterday, and will hold the next reading on 21st October. We have emailed the Bill’s sponsor to ask for a copy of the Bill and will publish the text once we get permission.
