§ 47. Mr. STEEL-MAITLAND
asked the Prime Minister if he will state when the decision of the Government may be 273 expected as regards the introduction of legislation to remove the electoral disabilities of persons absent on the naval or military service of the Crown whose cases are not covered by the Act of last Session; and whether he will at the same time consider the inclusion of provisions for the removal of any disabilities that may be similarly caused in municipal elections as regards either voters or those submitting themselves for election?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
This matter is being attended to, and we shall be glad to have the co-operation of the various parties in the House in framing legislation that will deal adequately with the situation.
