HC Deb 07 November 1911 vol 30 c1474

asked the Prime Minister whether, as it was proposed to establish in Ireland a Parliament consisting of two Chambers with full representative powers and control, it was also the ultimate intention of the Government to re-constitute the Imperial Parliament upon a double-Chamber basis?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Asquith)

I must refer the hon. Member to the Preamble of the Parliament Act.


Can the right hon. Gentleman give any indication as to when it is proposed to restore the balance of the Constitution by the creation of a Second Chamber with reasonable effective powers?
