Question to the Ministry of Justice:
To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the answer by Lord Stewart of Dirleton on 6 January (HL Deb, col 131), what progress they have made with the review of financial provision law.
The Government has committed to set up a Lord Chancellor’s working group to assess any evidence for changing the law of financial provision on divorce and dissolution. This review will be led by evidence, which is yet to be gathered, on whether there are problems with the current law. The Government will seek to ensure a balance of members from across different professions. The Government will make an announcement in due course.
