HC Deb 08 June 1868 vol 192 c1228

said, he would beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, in the case of a Borough of which the Boundary has been extended into an adjoining parish where the Small Tenements Act is now in force, and in which many of the persons about to be enfranchised under the Bill of 1867 have not been separately rated on account of the Small Tenements Act being in force, the Government will introduce a provision to enable such persons to be placed on the register so as to vote at the next Election?

He also wished to know, Whether, a morning sitting having been fixed for tomorrow at twelve o'clock, the arrangement made last year, by which the sitting commenced at two and was suspended from seven till nine, has been abandoned?


Sir, the arrangement for the morning sitting to-morrow is one which stands apart, and I will give the House an opportunity, if we have further morning sittings, of deciding whether the course pursued last year should be adhered to. With regard to the other Question of the hon. Gentleman, I recently stated, in answer to the hon. Member for Cheltenham (Mr. Schreiber), that I would bring up a clause on the Report of the Boundary Bill. It has been drawn, and I will place it on the table, so that it may be adopted at the earliest period.
