HC Deb 11 May 1927 vol 206 c381
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.


Will the Prime Minister consider the advisability, on the introduction of this Measure, of abolishing two-member constituencies and making them single member constituencies?


That is entirely a different question.
