HC Deb 20 December 1945 vol 417 cc1523-4
42. Mr. Gooch

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will introduce legislation to abolish voting by show of hands at parish council elections, and substitute a secret ballot, as in the case of all other local government elections.

Mr. Ede

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave on 8th November, to a similar Question by the hon. Member for Maidstone (Mr. Bossom).
