§ 60. Major NEWMAN
asked whether, before the House is asked to undertake legislation to bring the Government of Ireland Act into immediate operation, or other legislation of a party character that might involve the break-up of the Government, the Special Register Bill, or some similar measure to enable soldiers and sailors to exercise the franchise, will be placed on the Statute Book?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
No such legislation is at present in contemplation, and I see no reason to give a contingent undertaking in regard to it.
§ Mr. BILLING
Does the right hon. Gentleman think it right or just that the old register should be used for the forthcoming election?
