F. Section 1(5)-(8)publication
82. Section 1(5)-(7), and part of section 1(8),
deal with the publication of the banns in cases under the Measure.
They provide that:
- the banns must be published where
the marriage is to take place. (The same applies under the 1949
Act where the marriage is to take place in a parish where neither
of the couple are resident but one or both are on the church electoral
roll). The notice requesting the calling of banns there must be
given to the minister; and
- the banns must also be published in the parish
or parishes where the couple or each of them are resident (again
as under the 1949 Act for the marriage of a person on the church
electoral roll). Under a provision added by the Revision Committee,
once more corresponding to the provisions in the 1949 Act for
a marriage of a person on the church electoral roll, a certificate
of due publication of the banns in the parish or parishes where
the couple are resident must be produced in advance to the member
of the clergy who is to solemnise the marriage.
MATTERS RAISED BEFORE THE REVISION COMMITTEE AND
THE GENERAL SYNOD
83. The only issues which arose here were essentially
technical ones regarding the application of provisions for corresponding
cases in the 1949 Act which are referred to in the previous paragraph.
The proposals to deal with them were accepted by the Revision
Committee and did not prove contentious.
