This book has has detailed how the law has developed to date. Now there are further developments looming ahead, at least at the time of writing this chapter. The Law Commission have made their third Report on Family Property. It is divided into three books. Book one recommends there should be co-ownership of the matrimonial home. Book two covers rights in respect of occupation of the matrimonial home. Book three covers use and enjoyment of household goods. These recommendations will no doubt form the basis of a Bill which will be laid before Parliament. They appear to be in accord with the wide principles which attempts have been made to introduce by judicial decision. If passed into law, it will mean that the role of the judges will in future be confined to the interpretation of the Statute. But it is judges hitherto who have been the pioneers.
