§ 13. Mr. Hollis
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will appoint a commission, or committee, to inquire into the present state of the law concerning the disqualification of ministers of religion for membership of this House, and to make recommendations for its reform.
§ Mr. Hollis
Can the Home Secretary hold out any hope that he will carry out the specific pledge he gave on 19th October, that an inquiry would be held?
§ Professor Savory
Has the Home Secretary's attention been called to the anomaly that whereas clergy of the Scottish Episcopal Church are eligible to sit in the House, clergy of the Church of Ireland are not allowed to do so?
§ Mr. Sorensen
Will my right hon. Friend also consider the anomaly of bishops sitting in another place?
