44. Mr. MacCALLUM SCOTT
asked whether a soldier whose health has broken down while serving in the Army, who has been discharged incapable of working at his trade without a pension, and who has been compelled to seek parochial relief, is liable to have his name struck off the register of Parliamentary voters; and, if so, whether steps will be taken to prevent this happening in the making of the next register?
§ Mr. HAYES FISHER
A person who receives Poor Law relief other than medical or surgical assistance within the meaning of the Medical Relief Disqualification Removal Act, 1885, is disqualified from being registered as a voter. Cases of the kind referred to by the hon. Member will be carefully considered in connection with any legislation which may be proposed on the subject of registration.
