HC Deb 14 June 1945 vol 411 cc1813-4W
Mr. Kirby

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what arrangements have been made to enable members of the Palestine police to vote in the forthcoming General Election.

Colonel Stanley

No special arrangements have been made. Sections 8 and 11 of the Parliament (Elections and Meeting) Act, 1943, and Section 3 of the Representation of the People Act, 1945, apply to members of the Forces, seamen, and war workers, who, but for the war, would have been residing in the United Kingdom. I am advised, however, that members of the Palestine Police Force do not come within these provisions.
