§ MR. C. M'LAREN
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he has received any representations from the Leicestershire County Council as to the date on which the Parochial Register of Electors should come into operation; and whether he proposes to make the date the 1st of January, 1895, as in the case of the Parliamentary and Local Government Registers, or to adhere to the 22nd of November as originally fixed?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. SHAW-LEFEVRE,) Bradford, Central
I have received the representation referred to from the Finance and General Purposes Committee of the Leicestershire County Council, as they think the date on which the Parochial Register would come into effect may be deferred till January 1. I have received no other representation on the subject, and I do not propose to make any change in the Bill.
