CONSTITUTION OF THE HOUSE

No better was the fortune of Mr. Leonard Courtney, now Lord Courtney of Penwith, in 1884. The three-cornered constituencies which were introduced in 1867 at the instance of the house of lords, and which aimed at securing the return of candidates who could secure the support of one-third of the voters in their constituency, perished in 1885, and the Act of that year established the general principle of single-member constituencies. The cumulative vote for English school boards, introduced in 1870, went with the school boards themselves in 1902. The experience of Belgium, and the experiments which are being tried in Tasmania, South Africa and elsewhere, have revived interest in the question, and the whole subject was carefully considered by a royal commission which reported in 1910. Proposals for proportional representation have obtained the support of many men of eminence and ability, but do not appear to have yet aroused any general interest either in parliament or in the country.
A word or two may be said in conclusion on the qualifications of members as distinguished from voters. A residential qualification was imposed in the fifteenth century but soon became obsolete, and was formally repealed, as such, in the eighteenth century. By the legislation of that century a property qualification was required, but it was easily evaded, and was abolished by a private
