HC Deb 07 November 1916 vol 87 c44

asked the Prime Minister if he will now consider the desirability of presenting a new Registration Bill which will deal justly with the claim to vote at Parliamentary elections of all soldiers and sailors of eighteen years of age and upwards who have served or are serving in the present War; and, if it should be considered impracticable to give the vote to soldiers and sailors without extending the franchise to women, if he will consider the advisability of including, in addition to the soldiers and sailors above-mentioned, all sailors of the mercantile marine, and all bona fide munition and war workers of both sexes of twenty-one years of age and upwards, as well as of all women now empowered by the existing law to vote in municipal elections?


These questions can be raised in the discussion which I have promised.
