HC Deb 26 May 1978 vol 950 c789W
Mr. Brotherton

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will issue a circular to local authorities inviting them to follow the example of Bradford Metropolitan Council by selling space on rent books, council employees' pay packets and letters to voters about electoral lists to commercial advertisers.

Mr. Guy Barnett

This is a matter for each local authority and electoral registration officer to consider and determine in the light of local circumstances.
