§ 39. Mr. George Griffiths
asked the Home Secretary whether, at the first local authorities elections after the war, the whole members of the council will be required to seek re-election, or will only one-third retire?
Lieut.-Commander Gurney Braithwaite
In view of the fact that the war has lasted nearly three years, will my right hon. Friend consider having the vacancies which arise on local bodies filled by election rather than by co-option?
§ Mr. Morrison
That would present considerable difficulties and be very inconvenient. I will consider the point raised by my hon. Friend the Member for Hemsworth (Mr. G. Griffiths), and I hope to make a statement later.
