HC Deb 02 August 1888 vol 329 c1212
MR. M'LAREN (Cheshire, Crewe)

asked the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, Whether, in view of the approaching school board elections this autumn, he will recommend to those persons who fix the seven hours during which the poll may remain open that they should in all cases arrange to have it open between 6 and 8 p.m., for the convenience of the working-class electors; and, whether he is aware that in many places at the last election it was only open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.?


By regulations which have been substituted for those to which the hon. Member refers, the Education Department have directed that the poll in every school board election shall be open between the hours of 6 and 8 p.m.
