§ 22. Mr. Emery
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will take legislative action to ensure that all persons who are away from their home on holiday at the time of future parliamentary elections shall have the right to apply for a postal vote; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Roy Jenkins
This proposal was considered by the Speaker's Conference in 1965–68, who recommended against it. If the matter is to be revived, the proper course would first be to refer it to a reconvened Speaker's Conference.
