Section 7: Re-registration of births of legitimated persons

Has the effect that the Registrar General may no longer require the informant (who has failed to re-register the birth within the relevant period) to attend personally at a specified place within a specified time and sign the register in the presence of the registrar. As a result the Registrar General may require the informant to take such steps, within a specified time, for the purposes of re-registration as are specified in the notice issued by the Registrar General.
