HC Deb 29 May 1911 vol 26 c699

asked what is the number of males in England and Wales, between the ages of sixteen and thirty-five and between the ages of thirty-six and sixty, respectively, as shown by the Census return?


It will be a considerable time before the information asked for by the hon. Member will be available.


asked the Prime Minister whether he has examined the preliminary return obtained at the recent Census which shows that the actual population of the administrative county of London has decreased by 0.29 per cent., while that of the county of Middlesex has increased by 42.17 per cent.; and whether, in view of these figures, he will undertake during the lifetime of this Parliament to introduce legislation to deal with the fact that the hon. Member for the St. George's Division of Tower Hamlets represents in this House 3,252 electors and the hon. Member for Enfield 30,565?

The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Lloyd George)

His Majesty's Government are not at present in a position to make any statement on this matter.
