§ Mr. CLOUGH
asked the President of the Local Government Board the number of women in England and Wales who have 1210W attained the age of twenty-five years who, if they were men, would be entitled to be registered as Parliamentary electors in respect of a household qualification within the meaning of the Representation of the People Act, 1884, and who are the wives of men entitled to be registered in respect of such household qualification?
§ Mr. BURNS
I am afraid there are no data on which to base an estimate of any value. I can only say that at the Census of 1911 the number of women in England and Wales returned as of the age of twenty-five years or upwards was 9,750,264. Of these 6,206,112 were returned as married. The number of male occupation voters in England and Wales in 1912 was 5,507,134, but it is impossible to say how many of these were married.
