HC Deb 13 July 1961 vol 644 c574
26. Mr. Wall

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what arrangements are being made for elections in Malta under the new Constitution.

Mr. Iain Macleod

The electoral laws are now being reviewed by the Governor for this purpose, and it is hoped that elections will take place before the end of 1961 or early in 1962.

Mr. Wall

Will my right hon. Friend look into the question of bringing up to date the method of compiling the electoral rôle, and, if possible, abolishing the system of voting certificates?

Mr. Macleod

I think these matters are being examined. I hope in the few weeks' time to have the result of the Governor's review.
