HC Deb 03 August 1905 vol 151 cc101-2
MR. BENN (Devonport)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, to meet the contingency of a general election in November next, he will take steps to make the registers of voters which come into force on 1st November for municipal purposes available for a Parliamentary election.


It is difficult to imagine what exceptional circumstances would justify the procedure which the hon. Gentleman recommends. Certainly, in my judgment, no such exceptional circumstances exist at the present moment.
