HL Deb 20 May 1998 vol 589 c172WA
Lord Avebury

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What attempts they have made to find copies of the papers from the Speaker's Conferences on Electoral Law of 1916–17 and 1929–30. [HL1848]

Lord Williams of Mostyn

My officials have not been able to trace any papers for the Speaker's Conference of 1916–17, but are continuing to search. Some Home Office files containing a limited number of papers from the Speaker's Conference of 1929–30 are in the Public Record Office.
