HC Deb 29 July 1907 vol 179 c497
MR. SEAVERNS (Lambeth, Brixton)

I beg to ask the Prime Minister whether it would be possible to make arrangements by which an amount of time might be devoted to legislation for the special needs of the 6,000,000 of people in London which would more closely approximate that devoted to Scottish and Irish legislation; and whether arrangements can be made whereby important London measures, such as the Water Bill, shall come before the House for discussion before 11 o'clock p.m.


I am well aware that the measures specially affecting London have not had their fair proportion of time this year, but I hope that that will not be so in future.

LORD R. CECIL (Marylebone, E.)

May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he thinks it at all probable that three important subjects affecting London—namely, the traffic question, the Port of London question, and the electric light question—will be dealt with next session?

MR. T. M. HEALY (Louth, N.)

Can you not arrange to give the English a Parliament to themselves?

[No Answer was returned.]
