HC Deb 17 July 1905 vol 149 c879
MR. HUNTER CRAIG (Lanarkshire, Govan)

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board why the municipal borough of Govan, with a population of over 90,000 inhabitants, is not provided with a Member to itself in the Government Redistribution scheme, which provides that all municipal boroughs with a population of 65,000 are entitled to a Member.


My attention hag been called to the case of Govan and I have made inquiry about it. I agree that it should receive separate representation as coming under Paragraph 1 (b) (i) of the Redistribution Resolution. The result will be that the number of Members for the county of Lanark will remain at six as at present.
