HC Deb 09 July 1970 vol 803 cc85-6W
39. Mr. Tilney

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in order to avoid mistakes in the Register of Electors, he will take steps to ensure that a copy of the appropriate page of the draft Electoral Register is sent to each householder with a request to check his/her entry.

Mr. Sharples

No. This would be disproportionately expensive, and even so would not guarantee a completely accurate register. The best way of avoiding mistakes is for householders and others to check the electors lists when they are on display from 28th November to 16th December.
