§ 16. Mr. SCRYMGEOUR
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is prepared to take any steps in furtherance of the proposal made to him by representatives of the Dundee town council whereby free postage of municipal candidates' electioneering literature would be made available, as in the case of candidates for parliamentary representation?
Mr. W. ADAMSON
As the hon. Member is aware, legislation would be required to give effect to the proposal of the town council, and I am not in a position to hold out any hope of this meantime.
§ Mr. SCRYMGEOUR
Seeing that the Post Office is so well placed financially for meeting this matter, will the right hon. Gentleman reconsider the question?
