§ 16. Captain BERKELEY
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department whether it is proposed to introduce legislation amending the Representation of the People Act to secure that Members shall not be elected to this House on a minority vote?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Rhys Davies)
This is a difficult and controversial question, and, owing to the demands of other pressing business, the Government have not yet found time to examine it closely. In the circumstances, I regret that I am not in a position to make any statement on the subject to-day.
