HC Deb 07 November 1918 vol 110 c2280
64. Major HUNT

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the feeling among the people of this country and the Dominions that only people whose father and mother were both British subjects should be allowed to sit in the House of Commons, he will bring in and pass a short Bill to this effect before the next General Election?


I cannot add anything to the previous answers on this subject.

Brigadier-General CROFT

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is a very strong feeling throughout the length and breadth of the country on this question, and could he not consider it as the last good act of this Government?


This very point, when it was raised as an Amendment, was rejected, and I see no reason to suppose that the opinion of the House has changed.
