The Marriage Amendment Act 1917 also known by its full title "An Act to amend 'The Marriage Act 1895', and for other purposes"(Act no. 7 Geo. V No.49) altered the Marriages Act 1895 by empowering the Governor to remove people from the list of Officiating Ministers (those allowed to conduct marriages) if the Governor thought they were not a fit or proper person to celebrate marriages. This legislation was repealed by Statute Law Revision Act 1934 (25 Geo. V no.78) on 31 May 1938.
