HC Deb 21 April 1885 vol 297 c307

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the Government is prepared to limit the provisions of the Irish Registration of Voters Bill to the necessary provisions relating to Registration of Voters only, in regard to the new Franchise Act, and so promote the withdrawal of all opposition?


I can only say that the Bill, which is down for second reading to-night, contains the provisions which the Government consider necessary to secure the due registration of voters and other objects of a similar character in connection with the new franchise.
