Mark Harper has been interviewed by BBC News on the government announcing plans to implement no-fault divorce law.

Spouses will no longer have the right to contest divorces under reforms that will stop people from being trapped in unhappy marriages.

At present husbands and wives are entitled to fight an application for divorce, and have to find fault with their or their partner’s actions to be granted a divorce, creating tension and animosity. The new law, announced by David Gauke the Minister of Justice Secretary, is to be introduced within three months with the aim to reduce family conflict.
