HC Deb 15 November 1917 vol 99 c556
35. Major CHAPPLE

asked the Home Secretary whether the draft Regulations recently issued in reference to the alternative vote are subject to modification; and, if so, whether he will take expert advice upon a scheme which gives to each candidate the full value of his second preference votes instead of the bottom one only as in the Regulations?


The draft Regulations are subject to modification, but the opinion of the experts whom I have consulted is not favourable to the alternative scheme referred to in the question.
