HC Deb 09 April 1963 vol 675 c131W
89. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies why, under Section 34(b) of Statutory Instrument, 1962, No. 2177, Aden (Constitution) Order in Council, women are to be prevented from qualifying as members of the Aden Legislative Council; and if women are to be specifically excluded from enfranchisement.

Mr. Sandys

The question of whether women should be given the vote is one for decision by the Aden Legislature when the franchise is reviewed.
