HC Deb 25 February 1982 vol 18 cc450-1W
Dr. Edmund Marshall

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, for the purpose of issuing sets of electoral registers free of charge to organisations supporting prospective parliamentary candidates, two political parties which have decided to support a single candidate in a particular constituency are treated as one or two such organisations in that constituency.

Mr. Mayhew

This is a matter for the electoral registration officer, subject to regulation 22(1) of the Representation of the People Regulations 1974, which provides that he may not supply more than one set—four copies—of registers in respect of the same candidature.
