He conducted a broad survey of any possible metabolic disorders or other genetic disorders potentially consequent on the parent's consanguineous marriage. It refers to consanguineous children, grand-children and other blood descendants in the direct line (query whether it also refers to step-descendants).

-According to Marriage Act 1835 sect 2 (Northern Ireland), marriages between persons within the prohibited degrees of consanguinity or affinity are absolutely null and void to all intents and purposes whatsoever.

It's all about keeping the money (and the valuable prize of UK citizenship) within the family

First cousin marriages in Pakistani communities leading to 'appalling' disabilities among children

Baroness Shreela Flather
By Steven Swinford, Deputy Political Editor5:33PM BST 07 Jul 2015

Couples who are getting married should be forced to have a DNA test first to ensure they are not cousins amid growing concern about incest within Pakistani communities, Britain's first Asian peer has claimed.

Baroness Flather, a former Tory who now sits as a cross-bencher, said in the House of Lords that it is "absolutely appalling" that first cousin marriages in Pakistani communities are leading to "so much disability among children".

She said: "There are a lot of first-cousin marriages in certain communities, particularly among Pakistanis who come from the Pakistani Kashmir area. We know so much about DNA now, but there is so much disability among the children, which is absolutely appalling.

"You go to any such family and there will be four or five children, at least one or two of whom will have some disability. That is absolutely unacceptable, and if we cannot do anything about it, is it fair to the children?"

Baroness Flather, a former barrister who was born in the Pakistani city of Lahore when it was part of India, said: "Never mind the parents — it is not fair to the children that they should be allowed to become disabled because of a social practice. It is a social practice which does not belong in today’s age, when we know so much about DNA. There should at least be some rule which says that you must have a DNA examination before your marriage can be registered."

First-cousin marriages, which are are legal in the UK, are practised within Britain’s Pakistani community, as well as among some Arab and African families. Medical data previously suggested that while British Pakistanis were responsible for 3 per cent of all births, they accounted for 30 per cent of British children born with a genetic illness.

Archeologists and DNA researchers have concluded that there is an
extensive and traceable consanguineous lineage from peoples ranging
from the far east to the furthermost shores of Europe.
