§ 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?
§ Sir G. CAVE
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.
