HC Deb 29 April 1913 vol 52 c994

asked whether, seeing that the Corrupt and Illegal Practices Prevention Act of 1883 laid down that no expenditure should be incurred in conveying electors to or from the poll, and that the use of motor cars at elections may be in contravention of the object of the Act, he will give facilities for the discussing of the Bill to regulate the loan or employment of motor cars for the purpose of conveying electors to or from the poll?

The ATTORNEY-GENERAL (Sir Rufus Isaacs)
