§ MR. WARTON
asked the President of the Local Government Board, Whether he would have any objection, before the Report Stage of the Seats Bill be taken, to grant the Return relating to Counties at large which have been divided by the Boundary Commission?
§ SIR CHARLES W. DILKE
I should not feel justified in granting a Return to the effect suggested until the boundaries have been definitely settled by both Houses, as the preparation and printing of the Return would necessarily be expensive, and it would be liable to mislead if all necessary corrections were not previously made. I think that a Return giving in full the contents of each division, both of boroughs and counties, as finally settled, would be found very useful; and I will lay such a Return on the Table as soon as the Bill becomes law. This Return might not be in the precise form suggested by the hon. and learned Member; but I will take care that it shall supply all the information which I believe it is his desire to obtain.
§ MR. SEXTON
asked the right hon. Baronet whether, in the interval between the Committee and the Report stage, the Bill would be reprinted, so that the House might be able to understand it?
