HC Deb 03 February 1913 vol 47 c1786
51. Mr. HUNT

asked whether, when a private Member's Bill is introduced next Session for giving votes to millions of women, it is the intention of the Government to allow the guillotine to be Used for the purpose of passing it, and if it is to be allowed to come under the Parliament Act and to be passed into Law before the judgment of the people has been taken on the question of giving votes to women?


These questions were fully dealt with on Monday last in the speeches of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the Foreign Secretary, and myself. It would be premature now to add anything to what was then stated.


Can the right hon. Gentleman not give us "Yes" or "No" to these very straight questions?


They deal with a prospective and contingent future.
