We are glad to note that Sir Henry Kimber and

the Members of Parliament who act with him, and who believe in a thorough and not a sham Redistribution scheme, have in temperate, but none the less firm, language urged upon the Prime Minister the necessity of allowing the Resolution to be amended. Their representations should, we hold, have the support of all sincere Unionists in the country. We again note with pleasure how much greater has been the sense of responsibility and statesmanship shown by the organs of the Unionist Press than by the Government. The Unionist newspapers have been almost unanimous in pointing out the inadequacy of the Resolution, and in demanding a more thorough treatment of the problem. The Morning Post, the Standard, and the Pall Mall Gazette, organs which can- not be accused of any Free-trade leanings, have spoken out with the utmost frankness.
