§ 61. Sir J. D. REES
asked the Prime Minister whether the Government will defer the consideration of the Criminal Law (Amendment) Bill till after the General Election, in view of the fact that enfranchised women will within the next six months have an opportunity of expressing their all-important opinion upon this subject?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
No, Sir. I would refer the hon. Member to the discussion on the Motion which was passed on Tuesday, 16th July.
§ Mr. LEES-SMITH
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the majority of women's organisations are intensely hostile to this Bill, and does he intend to proceed with it before the women have had a chance of voting?
