HC Deb 13 November 1917 vol 99 c226
64. Commander WEDGWOOD

asked. the Home, Secretary whether a deputation in favour of the Criminal Law Amendment Bill was received by him on 6th July, 1917; and, if so, why he has not yet been able to receive a deputation of women's societies, representing many thousands of organised women, who have signified their opposition at public meetings arranged by them in and around London?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As to the latter part, I promised to receive a deputation from certain associations who are opposed to the Bill before it is proceeded with, and I shall of course do so. I hope to arrange a date shortly.
