The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 70

Proportional Representation

Proportional Representation.

This question is too large for ample discussion here, and must be otherwise elaborated. Those who desire to study it will find it discussed by the late Charles Buxton in "Ideas of the Day on Policy;" by Sydney Buxton in "Political Questions of the Day;" page 14 by J. S. Mill in "Representative Government;" by Thomas Hare in "Representation;" and by Sir John Lubbock in a handy little book on "Representation." The exposition of this subject will devolve on those who feel it their duty to bring about an improvement in our present system. I am of opinion that minorities need protection and representation, and that the best form of government will not be obtained if the better taught classes and those who have most property at stake be swamped by mere numbers.
