HC Deb 21 December 1972 vol 848 c457W
Mr. Alfred Morris

asked the Prime Minister if he is aware that there have been candidates in parliamentary elections who have been refused, or would have been placed in difficulty for requesting, time off work for the periods of the elections they were to contest; and if he will place this matter before Mr. Speaker's Conference.

Mr. Carlisle

I have been asked to reply.

I am not aware of cases where such difficulties have arisen. If the hon. Member will send me details, I shall be glad to consider the matter.
