Mr DEAKIN - The answers to the honorable and learned member's questions tire as follow: -

1.   No. 2 and 3. No. The Bill makes no reference to States. It provides for the validation of marriages between certain persons in cases where, at the date of the marriage, each 'of the parties was domiciled in a part of the British Possessions in which, at that date, such marriage was legal.

4.   As at present advised, the Government see no objection to the measure, but further consideration will be given, and if thought necessary representations will be made to the Secretary of State.
