HC Deb 08 May 1924 vol 173 c636W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if he will give the cost of preparing and printing the register of voters for the six counties comprised in Northern Ireland for the past year; and how much additional it cost over the previous year in consequence of the serious alteration of electoral areas carried out by the Government of Northern Ireland?


The cost of preparing, exclusive of printing, the Register of Voters in Northern Ireland was£18,376 in respect of the 5th Register for 1922; £17,714 in respect of the 6th (current) Register for 1923. The charges for printing the 1922 Register were £7,962. The corresponding charges for printing the 1923 Register cannot be given at present, as a large proportion of the contractors' claims have not yet been received.
