HC Deb 18 October 1945 vol 414 cc1551-2W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will arrange for each candidate nominated in the municipal elections to be supplied with three copies of the ward register, free of charge.

Mr. Ede

Under the existing regulations a candidate in the municipal elections is entitled to purchase at least two copies of the appropriate section of the register. It has not been previously the practice to supply copies free of charge for this purpose, and I am not satisfied that there is any need to alter the arrangements.
