HC Deb 09 July 1964 vol 698 c129W
57. Mr. Wainwright

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if, in order to facilitate the preparatory work of all returning officers and their staffs, he will introduce legislation to provide that at least eight weeks' notice should be required of the date of General Elections.

Mr. Woodhouse

No. My right hon. Friend has received no representations from returning officers that insufficient time is available under the existing arrangements.
