HC Deb 27 May 1976 vol 912 c305W
Mr. Beith

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will give consideration to the automatic provision of postal votes, without need for special application, to blind persons, the severely disabled, and those over 75, by means of a certificate included in the electoral registration application form.

Dr. Summerskill

We hope that the new Speaker's Conference will be able to consider these and other questions relating to absent voting. Consultations between the leaders of the parties on the terms of reference for the new conference are in progress.
