HC Deb 27 March 1928 vol 215 cc968-9

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the estimated number of women voters who will be added to the roll in Dennistoun, Whitevale, and Mile End Wards, respectively, of the Camlachie Parliamentary Division of Glasgow by the new Franchise Bill?


The information available does not lend itself to accurate estimation, but in each of the three wards named the increase referred to will probably be between 2,000 and 2,500.


asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many plural voters are on the electoral registers; and is he able to state how many persons in receipt of Poor Law relief are registered as local government and Parliamentary electors in the County of London and how many for the rest of the country?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir William Joynson-Hicks)

The number of persons registered as Parliamentary electors in England and Wales for the business premises franchise is 205,538 and for university constituencies is 60,712, though it does not follow that all these persons are "plural voters." The answer to the second part of the question is in the negative.
