§ Mr. ROBERT HARCOURT
asked the President of the Local Government Board if he can state the estimated number of males over twenty-one and females over twenty-one in the United Kingdom; and also the number of male electors on the Parliamentary and municipal register, and of female electors?
§ Mr. BURNS
According to the Census of 1901, the numbers of males and females over twenty-one were 10,919,787 and 12,135,005 respectively. Very roughly, the increase since 1901 may be about per cent., but it is unsafe to estimate so long after a Census. The number of Parliamentary electors on the register for the year 1910 was 7,705,717. No figures are available to show the numbers of municipal electors.
