Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Gretna Green Marriage Certificate.

asked the Minister for Finance if he will state the date on which he was advised that a certificate of marriage, issued by the blacksmith at Gretna Green, was legal proof in this State of a valid marriage.

The advice referred to in my reply of 6th March last was given to the Minister for Finance in August, 1939.

Who was the then Minister for Finance?

I think it was Deputy MacEntee.
