HC Deb 18 June 1974 vol 875 cc112-3W
Mr. Spence

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will seek to amend the law relating to Service voters so as to enable a serving man's wife living with her husband on service to claim a Service vote on the same terms as her husband; and if he will make a statement.

Dr. Summerskill

This matter is being considered in the context of the various recommendations about registration of Service men and their wives made by the Speaker's Conference on Electoral Law in the last Parliament (Cmnd. 5363).
