HC Deb 14 August 1916 vol 85 c1407
39. Mr. R. MCNEILL

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Government of British Columbia has made arrangements whereby electors entitled to vote for members of the Legislative Assembly can record their votes while in England or on active service at the front; and, if so, whether he will have printed and published as a White Paper a statement describing the electoral machinery employed for this purpose?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Bonar Law)

Yes, Sir; but it has not been found possible to provide facilities for voting except in Great Britain. The arrangements for voting are set out in the Acts of the Provincial Legislature, and I will place a copy in the Library of the House as soon as copies reach me.


Is that election going on at present in this country?


I understand that it is.
