HC Deb 15 October 1918 vol 110 c15
18. Mr. JOWETT

asked the Prime Minister whether the Government has considered the initiation of legislation to allow women to stand for Parliament; and whether he will give time for debate on a private Member's Motion on which the House might record its wishes in this matter?

The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Bonar Law)

In the opinion of the Government this, like similar questions which arise in connection with the Franchise Bill, is one which ought to be left to the House, and I shall arrange to give an opportunity for its discussion.
