HC Deb 16 February 1854 vol 130 c735

wished to know whether, with respect to the proposed mode of voting, by which the noble Lord the Member for the City of London supposed he should be able to represent the minority—a plan something like making the last in the race the winner—it was intended to apply that method to the constituency of the City of London? He also wished to know whether the noble Lord proposed to make any provision by which, in case the honourable Member for the minority should die, the minority might be represented by his successor?


stated, that there was a clause in the Bill with respect to the City of London, which proposed that the electors, instead of voting for four Members, should vote only for three out of the four. With respect to the second question, he presumed he need give it no answer.
