HC Deb 18 May 1893 vol 12 cc1276-7
MR. MAXWELL (Dumfriesshire)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury if his attention has been called to a copy of a letter which appeared in The Scotsman of the 11th instant, addressed to secretaries of Liberal Associations in Scotland, by the right hon. the Member for Berwickshire, in which it is stated that it is impossible that the Registration Bills now before Parliament can become law in time to affect the registration this year; and whether, in these circumstances, the Government intend to proceed further during the present Session with the Registration of Voters (Scotland) Amendment Bill?


In the absence of the Prime Minister, I will repeat what the First Lord has more than once emphatically stated, i.e., that the Government intend to proceed with! and to carry into law the Registration of Voters (Scotland) Bill during the present Session.
