HC Deb 01 July 1909 vol 7 c579

Mr. CATHCART WASON presented a petition from residents in the State of Victoria, Commonwealth of Australia, urging "That the attempt now being made to tamper with the Statutory Declaration required by the Bill of Rights and the Act of Settlement to be made by the Sovereign of the realm, is dangerous to the Protesant succession and the stability of the Throne, and your petitioners humbly pray your honourable House to oppose any alteration as being mischievous and unconstitutional and fraught with great danger to the civil, political, and religious liberties of the people."
