§ 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?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
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.
