§ 49 and 50. Major NEWMAN
asked the Prime Minister (1) whether the Government have come to a decision as to the further extension of the life of this Parliament; and (2) whether he is able to make his promised announcement with regard to the registration of electors; and whether the Government have come to a decision as to the exercise of the franchise by qualified electors at present abroad with the Forces?
§ 59. Sir E. CARSON
asked the Prime Minister if he proposes to give a day for the discussion of the Motion, relating to Parliamentary Registration and Franchise, on the Order Book standing in the name of the Member for Dublin University?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I am afraid I cannot yet make a statement on this matter, but it is engaging the attention of the Cabinet. I hope to announce the decision of the Cabinet in the course of a few days, and will then, if it is desired, give an early opportunity for the discussion of the matter.
