HC Deb 08 July 1919 vol 117 cc1637-8W
Lieut.-Colonel POWNALL

asked the Minister of Health what is the estimated total cost of the half-yearly registration of electors throughout the United Kingdom?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to Class VI., 8 of the Civil Service Estimates and the note thereon, from which he will see that the estimated total cost of registration for the whole year is about £2,050,000. Half of this is borne by the Exchequer and half by local authorities.
