§ Mr. Marlow
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will examine the possibility of amending the law so as to provide for different deposits at general elections and by-elections.
§ Mr. Whitelaw
As I said in my reply to a question by my hon. Friend on 13 November—[Vol. 992, c. 359]—I have been considering this matter as part of my general review of electoral law and procedures and hope to make a statement about my conclusions before long.
