§ The Attorney-General
also moved for leave to bring in a Bill for the more effectual Registration of persons entitled to vote in the election of Members to serve in Parliament in England and Wales. The object of the Bill was to simplify the registration of voters by affording facilities to bonâ fide claimants. One of the provisions would give the Revising barristers power to mulct persons in costs who should make frivolous opposition to claimants. He would not, however, enter into the details of the Bill, until it were printed and laid before the House.
§ Leave given.
