HC Deb 17 February 1919 vol 112 c601W

asked the President of the Local Government Board what was, for the whole Kingdom, the total number of persons on the absent voters' lists in force at the recent General Election; and how many of them actually exercised the franchise?


Information is being collected as to the number of ballot papers issued to absent voters and returned before the count and accepted as valid; the returns from a few constituencies have not yet been received. As soon as the information is complete, I shall be glad to furnish the hon. Member with the information for England and Wales. I will communicate with the Scottish Office and the Irish Office as to particulars for Scotland and Ireland.
