§ 38. Colonel WOODCOCK
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will consider the advisability of bringing in legislation to prohibit the circulation of questionnaires to candidates at General Elections?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT(Mr. G. Locker-Lampson)
My right hon. Friend tells me he would be glad personally to see this reform introduced, but he fears it would hardly be so popular with the electors as with the candidates.
§ Sir H. BRITTAIN
Is not the wisest thing to do to follow the example of many hon. Members of this House, and absolutely decline to answer any such questionnaires?
