Labour Keeps its Promises
to the Women.
BUT WHAT IS THE TORY RECORD ?
At its Annual Conference in 1918 the Labour Party promised to do its best to secure the extension of the Franchise to all Adult Women.
How did it fulfil its promise?
In April, 1919, the Labour Party secured the Second Reading of a Bill to give votes to all Adult Women and to remove all restrictions on their holding civil or judicial offices.
THE GOVERNMENT OPPOSED the clause giving votes to women on the same terms as men,
THE LABOUR PARTY succeeded in getting it through the House of Commons.
THE HOUSE OF LORDS FINALLY KILLED IT.
THE LABOUR PASTY introduced the Bill again in 1920,
ONCE MORE THE TORIES KILLED IT.
LABOUR introduced it a Third Time,
AGAIN THE TORIES WOULD HAVE NONE OF IT.
