HC Deb 30 March 1925 vol 182 c934
47. Major CRAWFURD

asked the Prime Minister whether the forthcoming conference on franchise reform will consider the method of voting at elections as well as the persons who are to vote?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir William Joynson-Hicks)

I have been asked to reply. I can only repeat what I said on Wednesday last, namely, that I am unable to make any further statement as to the scope of the conference.


Whereas on Wednesday of last week I was asked by the right hon. Gentleman's colleague to repeat the question this week, may I now repeat the supplementary question which I then put—if and when may I expect an answer to this very simple question?


That is rather hypothetical. The hon. and gallant Member can expect an answer when we have made up our minds.
