HC Deb 22 November 1938 vol 341 c1500
65. Mr. Mathers

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the number of electors entitled to vote in county council elections in Scotland?

Mr. Colville

I regret that I am not in possession of the figures asked for in the question.

Mr. Mathers

Does the right hon. Gentleman mean that he does not get supplied with these figures annually after the lists have been made up? Is it not possible to provide this information, in order that it may be complementary to the information about the number of electors which he gave last week?

Mr. Colville

I do not get that information supplied to me. I can only get it by a special request to all the separate registration officers. Perhaps the hon. Member will be good enough to have a word with me on the matter.
