§ SIR HERVEY BRUCE
asked the President of the Local Government Board, If he will inform the House whether the details of the Redistribution of Seats Bill are the same as those originally drafted and laid before those Members of the Government and of the Opposition who met last year to come to an arrangement on the Bill; and, if not, whether he will inform the House what changes have been made?
§ SIR CHARLES W. DILKE
I am sorry I cannot give the information for which the hon. Baronet asks. I can only say that the draft scheme of the Government was greatly changed at the meetings which took place. I should not feel justified in stating the form in which the scheme was first placed before the conference of the Leaders.
