HC Deb 04 June 1924 vol 174 c1246
50. Mr. P. OLIVER

asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been drawn to a statement made by the Chancellor of the Exchequer at Slaithwaite on 16th May on the subject of electoral reform; whether, in accordance with such statement, he intends, before this Parliament comes to an end, to submit to the House a measure of electoral reform; and, if so, whether he is able to state what the nature of such reform will be?


I am aware that my right hon. Friend expressed his personal hopes that it would be possible to submit in the present Parliament a measure of electoral reform, but I am not able to make any statement on the subject at the present time.


Can the right hon. Gentleman say if any electoral reform suggested will apply to Northern Ireland, where Nationalists have been gerrymandered out of every district and county council in the six-county area?
