§ MR. PLUMMER (Newcastle-on-Tyne)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury, whether the Government will consider the desirability of appointing a Committee to inquire into the present distribution of Parliamentary representation.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
I shall be very glad to consider the proposal of my hon. friend. It is certainly important that the Government should be in a position when this subject comes to be discussed to lay all the material facts before the House. Perhaps if my hon. friend has any particular class of facts in view he will consider the possibility of moving for a Return.
