HC Deb 17 July 1947 vol 440 c68W
71. Mr. Pickthorn

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will give details of arrangements made for the broadcast by the B.B.C. of an appeal to all citizens to make sure that their names are included on the Electoral Roll to be published at the beginning of August.

Mr. Ede

The electors lists will be published elsewhere than in Scotland on 12th August and in Scotland on 15th August. It is proposed to ask the B.B.C. to broadcast, after publication of the lists, advice to electors to examine the lists and to make a claim for inclusion if a name appears to have been wrongly omitted. An advertisement urging people to make sure of their vote will be inserted in the national and main provincial newspapers.
