HC Deb 02 August 1944 vol 402 c1363
14. Mr. Hugh Lawson

asked the Secretary of State for Air if duplicate copies of completed electoral registration forms from R.A.F. personnel are kept at stations overseas until the originals have been received by the electoral registration officers in this country so as to prevent persons being disenfranchised due to loss of mails.

Sir A. Sinclair

No, Sir. I will, however, consider whether arrangements can be made to ensure that when mails are lost the personnel affected are afforded an opportunity to complete fresh declarations.
