Question to the Ministry of Justice:

To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they are taking to implement the recommendation included in the Law Commission report Matrimonial Property, Needs and Agreements, published in 2014, that "qualifying nuptial agreements should be introduced by legislation"; and whether they plan to introduce the Draft Nuptial Agreements Bill included in that report.

We are taking forward our commitment to review the legislation surrounding financial provision following divorce. Nuptial agreements are one element of this and any decision to introduce new legislation, including the draft Bill provided by the Law Commission in 2014, will be considered against the context of the wider review.
