- (a) a person who, by virtue of Sub-section (4) of section five of the Representation of the People Act, 1918, has at any time become entitled, as a male naval or military voter serving or having served in or in connection with the war, to be registered as a Parliamentary elector before attaining full age, continues to be so entitled, if otherwise qualified, notwithstanding that the service which brings him within the provisions of that section has ceased; and
- (b) the expression "service" in the said Sub-section (4) means service in or in connection with the War.
§ Lords Amendment: In paragraph (a) leave out the word "so" ["continues to 1624 be so entitled"] and after the word "qualified" insert the words "to be registered as a Parliamentary elector before attaining full age."
