(This note is not part of the Regulations)
Section 19(2)(a) of the Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, etc.) Act 2004 provides that where a marriage is to be solemnised in England and Wales, notices under section 27 of the Marriage Act 1949 must be given to the superintendant registrar of a registration district. The Immigration (Procedure for Marriage) Regulations 2011 specify the relevant registration districts within England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
These Regulations amend the list of registered districts in the Schedule to the Immigration (Procedure for Marriage) Regulations 2011 which lists districts for England and Wales by replacing reference to Cardiganshire North with Ceredigion. This is to reflect the amalgamation of the three registration districts of Cardiganshire Central, Cardiganshire North and Cardiganshire South into the single registration district of Ceredigion.
A full regulatory impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no impact on the private or voluntary sectors is foreseen.
