CONSTITUTION OF THE HOUSE

The last stage in the history of the reform of parliamentary elections is marked by the Representation of the People Act, 1884, and by the Act for the Redistribution of Seats which followed in 1885. The Act of 1884 is in form clumsy and difficult to understand, but its effect is very simple. It extended to the counties the household and lodger franchise which the Act of 1867 had conferred on the boroughs. It also remodelled the occupation qualification, making the occupation of any land or tenement of a clear yearly value of £10 a qualification both in boroughs and in counties. And it created a new form of franchise, called the service franchise, intended to meet some cases not quite covered by the householder or the lodger vote. The Act increased the electorate by forty per cent, and its most important effect was the enfranchisement of the rural working man. The Act of 1867 had given the vote to the working man in the town. The Act of 188-1 gave it to the working man in the country, the agricultural labourer and his like. It was soon afterwards that the famous " three acres and a cow " made their appearance on the parliamentary scene.
The house of lords refused to pass the Act of 1884 unless it was accompanied by a measure for the redistribution of seats. The difference between the two houses was ended by a compromise, in pursuance of which, after -in adjournment, a bill was brought in which
