§ 22. Mr. Eric Fletcher
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in order to avoid confusion at 602 municipal elections, he will introduce legislation to enable candidates who so desire to state their political party after their name on the ballot paper.
§ Mr. Ede
No, Sir. Parliament took a contrary decision only last year, in enacting the provisions of the Representation of the People Act which prohibit the use of party labels on nomination papers and consequently on ballot papers.
