§ THE EARL OF SHAFTESBURY
moved an humble Address to Her Majesty for—A Return stating separately for each Borough within the metropolis the following particulars:—The noble Earl said, the Reform Bill would add something like 400,000 voters to the metropolitan constituency, and it was therefore very desirable to have such Returns as those he moved for.
- 1. The Estimated Adult Male Population:
- 2. The Number of Adult Male Householders:
- 3. The estimated Adult Male Population who are not Householders:
- 4. Reports from the Overseer of each Parish stating, so far as can be ascertained, the Proportion of Lodgers who pay for unfurnished Rooms 4s. a Week or upwards, and the Proportion who pay less than 4s. a Week:
- 5. Such Reports also to state the lowest weekly Amount per Lodger paid by any considerable Number of Lodgers within such Parish."
THE DUKE OF BUCKINGHAM
said, the Returns under the three first heads could be easily made; but the remaining Returns could not possibly be obtained 1265 with any degree of accuracy within a reasonable time. He therefore suggested that the last two paragraphs of the Motion should be omitted.
§ Motion amended and agreed to.
§ House adjourned at a quarter before Six o'clock, till To-morrow, half past Ten o'clock.
