Carl Gardner's no fault divorce Bill

My long-term fellow legal blogger, friend and occasional Twitter sparring-partner Carl Gardner has drafted a no fault divorce Bill, which you can peruse here.

The Bill was prepared at the suggestion of campaigner and policy researcher Ellie Cumbo, who explains her thinking here.

As I have often said, we really need no fault divorce, to reduce unnecessary animosity and bring our system into line with the modern world. Carl's Bill does a great job, much simpler and better than the ill-fated Family Law Act 1996 (not that that's difficult!).

I commend it to the House.
