HC Deb 12 April 1910 vol 16 cc1066-7

asked the Prime Minister whether, in any Bill to give effect to the Resolutions now under the consideration of this House, he would, having regard to the increased responsibility attaching to the votes of Members of this House in the event of such a Bill becoming law, by reason of the limitation upon the Veto of another place, include in such Bill a clause amending the form of Oath to be taken by each Member of this House by the addition of words declaring that he will cast his vote in accordance with his conscientious conviction as to the public benefit upon the immediate subject of each vote, and not from any indirect motive, so that upon every matter introduced into this House the will of the people may, as far as possible, be accurately reflected by the votes of its Members?


I see no object in making such a change.
