HC Deb 17 July 1922 vol 156 c1707
40. Mr. C. WHITE

asked the Prime Minister whether the Government intend during the present Session, or during the lifetime of the present Parliament, to pass a Bill into law granting the franchise to women on equal terms with men?


No, Sir. As I have stated in reply to similar questions, I do not think it would be wise to re-open after so short an interval franchise questions which were settled by general agreement in the last Parliament.


Does not the right hon. Gentleman intend to carry out the pledge made prior to the election of 1918, or is this to be another of the broken pledges of the Government?
