HC Deb 27 November 1888 vol 331 cc318-9
MR. HOWARD (Middlesex, Tottenham)

asked the President of the Local Government Board, How the first election of County Councillors will be conducted in the Tottenham Electoral Division, there being no separate list of voters for the various wards under the Acts relating to the registration of electors, and whether any Order will be issued by the Local Government Board on the subject; and, whether in case the election will not be by wards, it will be by the whole county district, including Wood Green?

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

I have for some time past been awaiting further information from the Clerk of the Peace for Middlesex as to the Electoral Divisions for which there will not be separate lists of voters available for the first election of County Councillors. I have to-day received a statement from the Clerk of the Peace; and at present I can only say that the Tottenham and Wood Green Electoral Divisions are not included in that statement as Divisions for which separate lists are not available.
