Volume 715: debated on Monday 30 November 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Written Answer by Lord West of Spithead on 12 November (WA 220), whether the Minister's officials have come to a conclusion as to whether changes to the UK Border Agency's Entry Clearance Guidance are required in order to prevent polygamous or bigamous marriages under United Kingdom law; and, if so, whether they will implement that conclusion. [HL101]

A letter replying to the noble Lord's Question was despatched on 24 November 2009, a copy of which will be placed in the House Library. I thank the noble Lord for his patience during the period of prorogation.
