HC Deb 30 April 1889 vol 335 c778
MR. HERMON HODGE (Lancashire, Accrington)

asked the Secretary to the Local Government Board whether, in the event of County Councils giving instructions for the preparation of lists of voters in urban districts in street order, town clerks of municipal boroughs who have already issued their precepts will be compelled to issue supplemental instructions in accordance therewith; if not, who are the authorities to give such instructions to town clerks of municipal boroughs?


The question, I understand, applies to cases where directions have been given by the County Council that the lists of voters shall be made out according to the order in which the qualifying premises appear in the rate-book. We are advised that unless the directions have been given by the County Council prior to the issue by the town clerk of his precept, the directions will only take effect in connection with the registration for the subsequent year.
