§ Major HENDERSON
asked the Prime Minister whether he can undertake to introduce legislation to amend the Representation of the People Act so as to provide far only one register of voters in each year, and thereby reduce the cost which the preparation of two registers has been found to entail, and which are not really necessary?
§ Dr. ADDISON
I have been asked to reply to the question of the hon. and gallant Member. The Government cannot undertake at the present time to introduce legislation to amend the Representation of the People Act, 1918, to provide for only one register of voters in the year. The first two registers under the Act have, of course, been prepared in abnormal circumstances.
