HC Deb 22 June 1955 vol 542 cc67-8W
61. Mr. John Hill

asked the Minister of Defence how many service personnel travelled back from camp or other duties to their homes at public expense in order to vote in person at the General Election; and what was the approximate cost thereof.

Mr. Selwyn Lloyd

It is not possible to give a precise figure, but it is estimated that not more than 50 men applied for leave to vote in person under Paragraph 302 of the Regulations for the Territorial Army. The total cost is estimated at under £100.
