Alert me about debates like this
asked the Home Secretary how soon the Report of the Committee on Electoral Reform is likely to be presented to Parliament?
Allowing for the time required for printing, I hope this report will be in the hands of Members within the next fortnight or three weeks. One of the appendices will not be printed, but it will be made available to Members in the Library.
Has my right hon. Friend given any authority to political organisations or any other body to prepare schemes relating to electoral reform?
No, Sir. There is nothing to prevent political bodies acting on their own, but I have not given them any authority or made any request.
Are we to understand that any such schemes are entirely unofficial?
Have not registration officers had some instructions about getting ready for an election almost immediately after Christmas?
Not so far as I know, and I hope that I should have as early notice as anybody.
Does not my right Friend agree that every Member should have a copy of this Report?
