HC Deb 25 October 1916 vol 86 c1135W
Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Prime Minister whether, in order to test the feeling of the House, he will ask Mr. Speaker's permission to provide ballot boxes in the Lobbies for Members to vote aye or no on the question of applying the decimal system to measures, weights, and coinage, respectively; and whether, in the event of a substantial majority in favour of one or all of these courses, time will be given at the earliest possible moment to the discussion of legislation on the subject?


No, Sir, I see no reason to introduce this innovation, for the benefit of this particular project.
