HC Deb 04 December 1919 vol 122 c562
29. Major STEEL

asked the Prime Minister whether it is the intention of the Government to introduce legislation for the reform of the Second Chamber during the year 1920?

42. Mr. DOYLE

asked the Prime Minister when the Government intend to introduce legislation for the purpose of dealing with the reform of the House of Lords; and whether it is desirable that this great constitutional issue should continue to remain in exactly the same position as it was many years ago when his predecessor declared it to be a question that brooked no delay?


As was stated by my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House on the 29th of October last in reply to a Supplementary question by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Dulwich, we are anxious to deal with this question at the earliest possible date.


Can the Prime Minister give a pledge that it will be this Session?


Wait and see.
