HC Deb 25 February 1970 vol 796 cc361-2W
Miss Quennell

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will now take steps to enable disabled people, who are fully eligible to vote, to use postal-voting facilities in rural district council elections.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

I am glad to say that the effect of Section 6 (5) of the Representation of the People Act, 1969, is to make these facilities available as from the elections next May.
