In sub-clause (1.), in the definition of " matrimonial cause ", paragraph (b), omit " a decree of dissolution or nullity of marriage or of judicial separation ", insert " the dissolution or annulment of a marriage by decree or otherwise or of a decree of judicial separation ".

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Clause 6 (Certain children to be deemed to be children of the marriage).
