§ 57. Mr. C. PERCY
asked the Minister of Health whether the Government will take the necessary steps to provide that the parliamentary registers prepared under The Representation of the People Act, 1918, shall be published only once annually, which would effect a considerable economy, and answer all reasonable purposes?
§ Mr. SHORTT
I have been asked to reply. The question of publication of the registers of electors annually instead of half-yearly has been under consideration, but no decision has yet been taken.
§ Mr. BRIANT
Is it not a fact that for some years only supplementary lists have been issued, and that as a complete register is not being kept a very small amount is involved?
