MARRIAGE OF BRITISH SUBJECTS (FACILITIES) ACT ORDER IN COUNCIL, 1916

[17th January, 1917]

 

At the Court at Buckingham Palace, the 16th day of November, 1916 Present,

 

The King's Most Excellent Majesty

 

Whereas by the First Section of the Marriage of British Subjects (Facilities) Act, 1915, it is (amongst other things) enacted as follows?

 

"Where His Majesty is satisfied that the law in force in any part of His Majesty's Dominions outside the United Kingdom makes due provision for the publication of banns or for the giving of notice in respect of marriages between British Subjects intended to be solemnised or contracted in the United Kingdom, and for the recognition of certificates for marriage issued by Superintendent Registrars in England, and of certificates for marriage issued by Registrars, and certificates of proclamation of banns in Scotland, and of certificates of marriage issued by Registrars in Ireland, and sufficient notice in respect of Marriages between British Subjects intended to be solemnised or contracted in that part of His Majesty's Dominions, His Majesty may, by Order in Council, declare that this section shall apply to that part of His Dominions, and in such case ?

              

"(a)      Where a marriage is intended to be solemnised or contracted in the United Kingdom between a British Subject resident in England, Scotland, or Ireland, and a British Subject resident in that part of His Majesty's Dominions, a certificate of notice of marriage issued in accordance with such law shall in England have the same effect as a certificate for marriage issued by a Superintendent Registrar, and in Scotland and Ireland have the same effect as a certificate for marriage issued by a Registrar in Scotland and Ireland respectively; and

 

(b)        Where a marriage is intended to be solemnised or contracted in that part of His Majesty's Dominions between a British Subject resident in that part and a British Subject resident in England, Scotland, or Ireland, a certificate for marriage may be issued in England by a Superintendent Registrar, or in Scotland or Ireland by a Registrar, in the like manner as if the marriage was to be solemnised or contracted under circumstances requiring the issue of such a certificate, and as if both such British Subjects were resident, in England, Scotland, or Ireland, as the case may be."

 

And whereas His Majesty is satisfied that due provision is made in respect of all the matters referred to in the hereinbefore?recited section of the said Act by the law in force in Seychelles, one of His Majesty's Dominions outside the United Kingdom:

 

Now, therefore, His Majesty, by virtue and in exercise of the powers by the above?recited Act in His Majesty vested, is pleased, by and with the advice of His Privy Council, to order, and it is hereby ordered, as follows:?

 

The First Section of the Marriage of British Subjects (Facilities) Act, 1915, shall apply to Seychelles.
