§ 56. Mr. PETO
asked the Prime Minister whether it is the intention of the Government, in introducing the Franchise Bill in the coming Session, to include provisions which will enable seamen, fishermen, and others whose business prevent their being usually able to register their votes on polling day, to record them through the machinery of an absent voter's list?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
As I recently stated it would be premature to make any statement on this subject.
§ Mr. PETO
Will the right hon. Gentleman take into consideration the advisability of making the title of the Bill sufficiently wide to enable provisions of the nature indicated in the question, and will he give favourable consideration to any reasonable Amendment which is put upon the Paper to give effect to that?
