HC Deb 16 December 1968 vol 775 cc292-3W
130. Mr. Sharples

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what estimate has been made of the additional cost of extending the hours of polling at a general election from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m.; and whether the additional cost of postponing counts until the following day has been included in such an estimate.

Mr. Callaghan

No estimate of these additional costs is possible at this stage.
