Marriage Law Reform in Wales – By Russell Sandberg

I am delighted to receive a reply to my email to Mick Antoniw MS, Counsel General and Minister for the Constitution, confirming that the Welsh Government ‘has expressed support’ for the Law Commission proposals on marriage law. It is excellent to have their ‘support for the reform of the marriage law’.

Marriage is not currently devolved and the reply states that the Welsh Government ‘will watch the UK Government’s response’ to the final report ‘with interest before considering our position and any representations we would need to make in order to pursue our policy objectives.’
