§ 6. Mr. Keeling
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that instructions issued to hospitals before the General Election were interpreted by them to mean that an expectant mother could not be given a medical certificate to enable her to apply for a postal vote until she became an in-patient; that in consequence some applications were too late; and whether he will revise the instructions he has given.
§ Mr. Keeling
As at least one of my constituents was disfranchised through the instructions issued by the right hon. 558 Gentleman, would it not be rather nice if he authorised me to express to her his regret and apologies?
