§ MR. BAGGALLAY (Lambeth, Brixton)
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, If his attention has been called to the fact that the honourable Member for the East Division of the Borough of St. Pancras, in his capacity of vestry clerk and clerk to the directors of the poor of the parish of St. Pancras, conducted by himself and his clerks the preparation of the present Register of Parliamentary Voters for the Borough of St. Pancras; and, if he will take steps, by legislation or otherwise, to provide that in future no person act as a paid official in preparing the Register of Voters in the constituency which he represents or for which he is an accepted candidate?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. JESSE COLLINGS) (Ipswich)
(who replied) said, he had communicated with the hon. Member for East St. Pancras (Mr. Gibb), who stated that it was not a fact that he conducted by himself and his clerks the preparation of the present Register of Parliamentary voters for the borough of St. Pancras.
§ MR. JESSE COLLINGS
The hon. Member for St. Pancras is in no way under the Local Government Board. I will, however, make further inquiries, and will get the information required.
