Whereas Kevin John Clarke (hereinafter called the child) was born on 6 February 1965 and was the subject of an application for adoption made to the Magistrate's at Hamilton by Geoffrey Henry Clarke late of Hamilton driver deceased (hereinafter called the father) and Rhoda Merle Clarke his wife (hereinafter called the mother) upon which an interim order was made in favour of the father and the mother on 22 September 1965:
And whereas the father died on 18 November 1965:
And whereas no application for a final order of adoption of the child had or could have been made prior to the death of the father but such application was made by the mother on 14 March 1966 and on the same day such final order was made and expressed to be in favour of the mother only:
And whereas the mother desires to have the father's name also shown as a parent on the said final order and in the new birth certificate of the child:
And whereas it appears that this can be effected only by enacting that the interim order of adoption in respect of the child shall be deemed for all purposes to be and always to have been a final order.
