Mr. A. Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will introduce the necessary legisla- tion to enable any 100 electors in a constituency where they have had no elected Member of Parliament for a period of eight weeks to petition Parliament, with the automatic consequence of the issue of a writ for the holding of a bye-election.
