Written answers (Question to Minister for Social Protection)

A Government decision was made recently to approve the drafting of Heads of a Bill to amend and add to the existing provisions contained in the Civil Registration Act 2004. The drafting of the Heads of a Bill will commence shortly. Many of the matters to be addressed in the Bill are complex and will require considerable consultation with other Government Departments and Offices. Following this process, I will be bringing the matter back to Government at the earliest appropriate opportunity, with a view to obtaining approval for the general scheme of a Bill.
