CONSTITUTION OF THE HOUSE

became law as the Redistribution of Seats Act of 1885. The terms of the bill were settled, during the adjournment, by an arrangement between the chiefs of the two parties, and so numerous and conflicting were the interests involved that without some such agreement the bill could not have become law.
The Act of 1885, though to some extent a compromise, was drawn on bolder lines than its predecessors, and was based on the general principle of equal electoral districts each returning a single member. The proportion of one seat for every 54,000 people was roughly taken as the basis of representation. In order to adapt this principle to the then existing system with the least possible change, boroughs with less than 15,000 inhabitants were disfranchised altogether, and became, for electoral purposes, a part of the county in which they were situated. Boroughs with more than 15,000 and less than 50,000 inhabitants were allowed to retain, or if previously unrepresented, were given, one member each : those with more than 50,000 and less than 165,000, two members; those above 165,000, three members, with an additional member for every 50,000 people more. The same general principle was followed in the counties.
The boroughs which had previously elected two members, and retained that number, remained single constituencies for the election
