HC Deb 25 June 1888 vol 327 c1128
MR. SCHWANN (Manchester, N.)

asked the President of the Local Government. Board, Whether in the County Electors Act of 1888, Section 4, Subsection 2, in a borough which is only municipal, and for which declarations are to be made on or before September 5, those declarations are to be served on the Town Clerk in that borough or on the Clerk of the Peace, on whom such declarations outside of that borough are served?

THE PRESIDENT (Mr. RITCHIE) (Tower Hamlets, St George's)

It is presumed that the Question is intended to refer to declarations in boroughs which are municipal, but not Parliamentary, under Sub-section 1 (a) of Section 4 of the County Electors Act. These declarations ought to be served on the Town Clerk of the borough, in accordance with the Parliamentary and Municipal Registration Act, 1878, and not on the Clerk of the Peace.
