§ 45. Mr. WARDLAW-MILNE
asked the Prime Minister whether he is now in a position to make a statement as to the intention of the Government to implement the pledges given in respect of the amendment of the Parliament Act and the reform of the House of Lords?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Baldwin)
I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave on the 3rd April last in reply to a question by the hon. Member for Northampton (Mr. Malone).
§ Mr. THURTLE
May we take it that, although the Prime Minister is not at the present time able to specify the time and manner in which this is going to he carried out, his Government is still firm in its intention to keep its pledge in this matter?
§ Mr. SHINWELL
Does the right hon. Gentleman's answer mean that in his opinion the House of Lords is beyond reform?
