HC Deb 14 June 1945 vol 411 c1814W
Sir J. Lucas

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what arrangements have been made to enable members of the N.F.S. to vote, more particularly those in rural areas.

Sir D. Somervell

Any member of the National Fire Service whose hours of duty are such that he would not be able to attend at a polling booth to record his vote before commencing or after completing his tour of duty, will, subject to the exigencies of the Service, be granted reasonable time off to enable him to vote.
