§ MR. LOUGH (Islington, W.)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he is aware that the new register of voters will be available in London and other places, for municipal purposes, on the 1st November; and. if so, whether the Government will, before Parliament rises, introduce a Bill providing that it shall also be available for Parliamentary purposes in case of any-general election taking place after the 1st of November this year.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
No, Sir. I think the programme of legislation we have already got to dispose of is sufficiently heavy. That programme is one in which the hon. Member takes a very great and active interest, and I think he can hardly expect me to add to it on his behalf.† See (4) Debates, ci., 1228.
