25. Captain COOTE
asked the Prime Minister whether he will consider the advisability of amending the Representation of the People Act so as to apply the principle of the alternative vote to single-member constituencies?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer given to a similar question by the hon. and gallant Member for Kincardine and Western on the 31st March.
Sir J. D. REES

§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that nothing short of this can possibly save the Liberal party?
