HC Deb 06 November 1978 vol 957 cc89-90W
53. Mr. Tim Renton

asked the Lord President of the Council whether there are any reasons why the European elections, the elections to the Scottish and Welsh Assemblies, and the next General Election should not be held on the same day.

Mr. John Smith

The proposed date of elections to the European Assembly has already been announced. It is neither necessary nor possible to speculate now about the timing of other elections.
