HC Deb 07 July 1882 vol 271 c1782

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether the Circular issued by his directions last year to vestry clerks and overseers, requesting that steps might be taken to put on the list of voters all persons occupying separately any part of a house, has been rescinded; or, have further instructions been given in the matter?


in reply, said, that the Question had been put under a misapprehension, as the Home Office had put no interpretation whatever on the Act; but had merely called the attention of the vestry clerks and overseers to the existence of the Act, which, of course, it was their duty to administer. There was nothing, therefore, to rescind.
