May 3, 1926 (15th Parliament, 1st Session)

PRO

William John Ward

Progressive

Mr. WARD:

The purpose of the bill is to establish equality of domicile as between man and wife. I think, probably, that no further explanation is required at this time. We are all quite familiar with the spirit of legislation of this kind at the present day. This is in keeping with the Women's Franchise Act, other divorce laws, and legislation pertaining to man and wife. The present bill is intended to " round out ", so to speak, equality of domicile as between man and wife.

Topic:   DIVORCE ACT AMENDMENT
