HC Deb 29 June 1955 vol 543 cc37-8W
Mr. Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for War what instructions are issued to commanding officers to ensure that serving soldiers are provided with full facilities for exercising the franchise at the time of a General Election.

Mr. Head

These instructions are contained in the pamphlet "Elections—Registration and Voting Procedures" which is issued to all units and is available in the Library of the House. Details of the procedure were given in my reply to a Question by my hon. Friend the Member for Gosport and Fareham (Dr. Bennett) on 29th April.
