§ 35. Sir Waldron Smithers
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is aware that the polling clerk and staffs at polling stations, in county council and local authority elections, who do not reside in the area covered by the polling station at which they are officiating, are prevented from recording their votes; and if he will take steps to remedy this.
§ Sir W. Smithers
Will the right hon. Gentleman bring to the notice of the Committee that, if it is not possible for men so engaged to vote at their own polling stations, arrangements should be made for them to vote at polling stations elsewhere?
§ Mr. Bowles
May I ask whether my right hon. Friend is really quite right? Surely, the Chairman of the Committee is the Parliamentary Under-Secretary to the Home Office and not Mr. Speaker.
