§ 45. Dr. CHAPPLE
asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the inconvenience arising from the rule which requiries a Member to seek re-election upon his acceptance of an office of profit under the Crown, he will give facilities to the Bill introduced by the hon. Member for Falkirk Burghs providing it is made to apply only to succeeding Parliaments?
§ Mr. McKENNA
Unless the Bill meets with general acceptance in all quarters of the House, I fear I cannot promise facilities.
§ Dr. CHAPPLE
Would the right hon. Gentleman approach the Opposition with a view to making that an agreed measure on the condition that it will not apply in this Parliament, but to subsequent Parliaments?
