HC Deb 05 May 1870 vol 201 c280

said, he would beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether, in the event of the Bill for the Disfranchisement of Bridgwater and Beverley becoming Law this Session, he will postpone the introduction of any measure for the re-distribution of the Seats until a Return of the Census of 1871 has been presented to Parliament?


replied that, as far as the view of Her Majesty's Government was concerned, it did not necessarily follow the disfranchisement of Bridgwater and Beverley that any measure would be introduced dealing with the disfranchised seats.
