HC Deb 06 June 1921 vol 142 c1508

asked the Prime Minister if, in view of the growing interest in the system of proportional representation and of the likelihood of it being adopted in the near future for the election of Members to this honourable House, he will cause to be circulated for the information of Members some Report of the recent election for the Northern Parliament in Ireland, with the necessary data as to the transference of surpluses, elimination of candidates, and so on?


My hon. and gallant Friend will not expect me to adopt his premises. As to the second part of the question, I am not clear that the Government can add anything to the information which will be available from other sources, but I will make inquiry.
