§ Sir J. HEWETT
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the right to vote at Parliamentary or municipal elections is given in any Dominion or any Crown Colony to any person who is not a British subject?
§ Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
The right to vote at Parliamentary elections in the Dominions and Colonies generally is confined to British subjects, but there are special cases in which the franchise is extended to British protected persons. With regard to voting at municipal elections in the Dominions and Colonies, the practice varies and depends upon the laws dealing with the matter in each particular case. As regards the Irish Free State, I would invite attention to Articles 3 and 14 of the Irish Free State Constitution.
