asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if his attention has been drawn to the report of a joint committee appointed by the British Medical Association and the Magistrates Association in respect of the law in relation to the illegitimate child, of which a copy has been sent to him; and, in view of the importance of the subject and the recommendations of the report, whether Her Majesty's Government will consider the implementation of the recommendations.

I would refer to the reply given on 21st February to the hon. Member for Dagenham (Mr. Parker).
