asked the Secretary for Scotland whether his attention has been drawn to the cost of printing and providing registers of voters under the Representation of the People Act, 1919; whether he is aware that in a small burgh like Cullen, in Banffshire, the cost of the two registers is equal to a rate of 4d. in the £1 for local taxation; and whether it is the intenton of the Government to consider an amendment to the Act so as to reduce the cost?
