7.4. Section 25-lineal consanguinity.-

Section 25 defines the expression "lineal consanguinity". The essence of such consanguinity is direct descent or ascent. Sub-section (1) of the section provides that lineal consanguinity one of whom is descended in a direct line1 from the other, as between men and his father, grandfather and great-grandfather, and so upwards in the direct ascending line, or between a man and his son, grandson, great-grandson, great-great-grandson and so onwards in the direct descending line.

Sub-section (2) provides that every generation constitutes a degree, either ascending or descending. This is illustrated by sub-section (3). A persons's father is related to him in the first degree, and so likewise is his son; his grandfather and grandson are related to him in the second degree; his great-grandfather and great-grandson in the third degree, and so on.

The section needs no change, having created no controversy or difficulty.

1. Contrast section 26-Collateral Consanguinity.
