HC Deb 20 July 1914 vol 65 c29
48. Mr. J. HOGGE

asked the Prime Minister whether he has abandoned the suggestion of making the returning officer's expenses a charge on the public as in all other elections; and, if so, will he say why in elections for the House of Commons candidates should be asked to provide all the machinery for enabling the electorate to record their votes?


The answer is in the negative. The Government are fully aware of the desirability of the change suggested by my hon. Friend.
