HC Deb 31 July 1907 vol 179 c974

I beg to ask the Prime Minister whether it is his intention to introduce legislation dealing with the question of second ballots, so that a clear majority of the electors voting in any constituency can return to this House the candidate they desire to elect; and whether he is aware that the Member for Jarrow recently received less than a third of the total votes polled and the Member for the Colne Valley 35 per cent. of the total votes polled.


I have nothing to add to the statement I made in answer to a similar Question on 11th July. †
