HC Deb 17 April 1905 vol 145 c326
MR. BLACK (Banffshire)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, in view of the Government's scheme of Redistribution, it is proposed to make provision for paying out of public funds the expenses incurred to returning officers at Parliamentary elections, so as to facilitate the return of manual labourers and other persons of moderate means to the service of this House.


I hardly think the suggestion of the hon. Gentleman is one that is germane to a Redistribution Bill.
