§ 47. Mr. LYNCH
asked the Prime Minister whether any provision exists in the British Constitution which enables any British subject to be a member of two Parliaments within the British Possessions; and, if so, whether he will introduce legislation enabling Peers of the Realm to become eligible for membership of the House of Commons?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
A Member of the House of Peers cannot be also a Member of the House of Commons, but so far as I am aware there is nothing to prevent a 609 member of a Dominion Parliament being also a Member of the British House of Commons. The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative.
