§ 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?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
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.
