Updated guidance for the clergy on marriage law

The sixth issue of the General Register Office’s Clergy Newsletter is available to read, along with earlier editions: www.gov.uk/government/publications/clergy-newsletters.
A new edition of the ‘Guidebook for the Clergy’ is now available: www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-for-the-clergy. This is an important update because it takes account of the changes in the law brought about by the Immigration Act 2014. In particular, the flow-chart in Appendix B of the Guidance will assist clergy in establishing whether a person who does not have a current British Passport is a British National.
