Coronavirus (Scotland) (No.2) Act 2020: Report on Marriage and Civil partnership

First two-monthly report to the Scottish Parliament on the steps taken to ensure that the solemnisation of marriages and registration of civil partnerships continues to be available, and on the number of marriages and civil partnerships that have taken place during the reporting period.


The Reporting Period

2. The provisions of paragraph 24 of schedule 1 provide that reports must relate to "each reporting period". This has the meaning given by section 12(4) of the second Scottish Act. The first reporting period began the day after Royal Assent and ended on 31 July 2020.

3. The second Scottish Act received Royal Assent on 26 May 2020. Therefore, this report covers from 27 May 2020 to 31 July 2020 inclusive.

4. In preparing this report, the Scottish Ministers have obtained information from National Records of Scotland on the number of marriages and civil partnerships that have been solemnised and registered during the reporting period.
