HC Deb 12 August 1919 vol 119 cc1103-4
70. Major M. WOOD

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether his attention had been drawn to resolutions passed by local authorities in Scotland advocating an Amendment of the Representation of the People Act, 1918, so as to provide for the issue of only one register of voters in each year; whether, in view of the fact that the usual removal term in Scotland was in the month of May, a register of voters prepared to take effect as at l5th October in each year would be sufficient for all practical purposes; and whether he proposed to take any action in this matter?


I would refer the hon. Member to my right hon. Friend's reply of the 1st ultimo to the hon. Member for the Montrose Burghs, and of the 30th ultimo to the hon. Member for Caithness and Sutherland.
