HC Deb 21 June 1848 vol 99 cc985-6

House in Committee on the Parliamentary Electors Bill.

On the 1st Clause— No person required an order to be placed on the list of voters to pay any rate or taxes except those payable on October 11 of preceding year.


opposed this measure as tending to make an important innovation on the Reform Bill, and as being a virtual repeal of the ratepaying clause.


apologised for the measure being rather a homœopathic dose of reform, than, as the hon. Gentleman seemed to think, an important innovation on the Reform Bill. His bill only proposed to extend the time for the payment of rates.

The Committee divided on the question that the clause stand part of the Bill:—Ayes 58; Noes 47: Majority 11.
