§ 46. Sir F. WISE (for Sir J. POWER)
asked the Prime Minister whether, in the forthcoming Representation of the People Bill, any steps will be taken to disfranchise for a period those persons who fail to vote at any election without good cause shown?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Baldwin)
No, Sir. In the view of His Majesty's Government the proposal contained in my hon. Friend's question would not be practicable.
§ Mr. WALLHEAD
Will the Prime Minister consider the advisability, on the introduction of this Measure, of abolishing two-member constituencies and making them single member constituencies?
