§ MR. LAWSON (St. Pancras, W.)
asked the President of the Local Government Board, Whether he is a ware that the Register of County Electors has been published separately from the Parliamentary Electors by the Returning Officer for St. Pancras; and if the double expense thus imposed on all persons wishing to obtain copies of those entitled to vote in either one of the two elections is not contrary to the arrangement proposed in this House?
§ THE PRESIDENT (Mr. RITCHIE) (Tower Hamlets, St. George's)
I have no knowledge of the particular case cited. There is nothing in the Statute to prevent separate Registers being issued; but certainly, where the Parliamentary and County Divisions are the same, as is the case in the Metropolis, I see not the smallest necessity for it.
