HC Deb 24 June 1924 vol 175 c270W
Sir W. de FRECE

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the contemplated alterations in the franchise, which will presumably entail an early election after their acceptance, he will take steps to ensure that the Committee which is considering the whole question of the civil rights of civil servants shall report in ample time before any electoral appeal is made to the country?


I assume that the hon. Member is referring to the Committee appointed to inquire into the Regulations governing the candidature for Parliament and for municipal bodies of persons in the service of the Crown. I see no reason to expect that the Report of the Committee will be unduly delayed.
