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