§ 118. Mr. DICKINSON
asked the President of the Local Government Board, whether he has considered the effect of Section 3 of the Parliament and Local Elections Act, ]916, which enacts that if a register of electors is prepared in September and October, 1916, and a Dissolution of Parliament should take place before any Act for the preparation of a new Parliamentary register has been passed the Parliament so elected shall exist for a period not exceeding two years; and whether this limitation will or will not continue to be operative when new registers are prepared under the Special Register Bill now before Parliament?
§ Mr. LONG
As I am advised, Section 3 of the Parliament and Local Elections Act, the limitation on the duration of the life of Parliament there provided for would not affect a Parliament elected on a register prepared under the Special Register Bill.
