HC Deb 24 October 1972 vol 843 c290W
Mr. Kilfedder

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland whether officials who check whether the electoral roll is correct have visited every house in the Bogside and Creggan areas of Londonderry and the Falls, Ballymurphy, Anderstown and Turf Lodge areas of Belfast during the past 12 months; whether such officials have been instructed to check the names and addresses of persons in these areas for the purposes of the electoral roll; and when such checks will be carried out in these areas.

Mr. David Howell

The statutory requirement for this check is that sufficient inquiries should be made. This has been achieved by a combination of house-to-house inquiries and the usual returns from the occupiers of premises.
