§ 46. Mr. BOTTOMLEY
asked the Prime Minister whether it is proposed to abolish the peerages of which the Dukes of Albany and Cumberland have recently been deprived; and, if not, whether the heirs of such dukes will ultimately become eligible for the assumption of the titles?
§ Mr. SHORTT
The position with regard to the peerages in question is determined by the Titles Deprivation Act, 1917, to which I would refer the hon. Member.
§ Mr. BOTTOMLEY
Have these peerages definitely lapsed or are they still open for some future heirs or successors?
