HC Deb 22 July 1970 vol 804 c167W
Mr. Kaufman

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list the numbers of Parliamentary electors in each local authority area in England for the latest convenient date since the publication of the current Electoral Register.

Mr. Sharples

A list giving this information in respect of local government electors has been placed in the Library of the House. Corresponding figures in respect of Parliamentary electors—i.e. excluding peers—are not readily available.
