§ 57. Mr. A. Evans
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action he is taking to enable electors in the urban district of Potters Bar to vote in elections and by-elections for the Hertfordshire County Council.
§ Mr. Brooke
I have asked the Hertfordshire County Council to publish proposals for the division of Potters Bar into electoral divisions for the election of councillors to the county council. If objections are made against the proposals, I shall appoint an independent barrister to hold a local inquiry and report to me. Provisions to give effect to my decision will be included in an order under Section 84 of the London Government Act, 1963. The intention is to provide for special elections to be held so that Potters Bar can be represented on the county council from 1st April, 1965, when it becomes part of Hertfordshire.
