§ 45. Mr. McGOVERN
asked the Prime Minister if he is prepared to introduce legislation for the abolition of the House of Lords?
§ Mr. P. SNOWDEN
The Government certainly hope to bring the question of the House of Lords to an issue and when the time comes will ask for power to do so.
§ Mr. McGOVERN
And in view of the fact that, owing to recent decisions, four-fifths of this party are committed to this issue, will the right hon. Gentleman confer with the other fifth of the party to see whether they are in favour?
§ Mr. McSHANE
May I ask whether formal notice is to be sent to the House of Lords of the decision of the Government?
